We know what makes a pond look good. The ANSWER: Your hard work! Ponds and water gardens require a lot of maintainence to keep them looking healthy. We offer a wide variety of pond plants and we are sharing our tips to help keep your pond looking amazing! New videos to come this year on our youtube channel. So keep an eye out.

If you have never ordered plants online, we understand that you may question whether or not they will arrive healthy. We have been in the business for nearly a decade and we have established a great shipping team. Sometimes, through no fault of our own, Fedex or USPS takes longer to deliver a package then promised. We are happy to replace any plants that die during transit.


How to Select Pond Plants



The first set of questions to ask are, How does my pond look? Is it lacking plants that float on top of the water? Does it have murky water, or is the water clear? Does the edge of the pond look pleasing? You must get a clear picture of what you expect your pond to look like. Approximately 50% of your pond should be filled with plants to create a healthy ecosystem.

Starting with the perimeter of your pond, work on choosing what bog (shelf) plants you're going to put in and around the perimeter of your pond. . Unless you have an island in the middle of your pond, then do as you wish. Don't forget to leave room for growth, we sell a wide variety of starter plants. If you are interested in tall perimeter plants then you are looking to use cattails, rushes, and reeds. If you have a small pond and your goal is to fill areas up quickly, we recommend flowering or low growing plants. These plants are not as invasive as grass-like plants. Iris plants are a good balance of color and the grass-like look.

Floating plants

Floating plants will aid in clearing murky water by continuously absorbing nitrates and phosphates, the leading nutrients that cause algae growth. Preventing algae growth also requires shading the pond to prevent photosynthesis from occurring in algae spores, which the floating plants provide. Floating plants are also great for filling empty space.
Water Lilies

Water lilies are essential to water gardens. There are over 50 named varieties of water lilies, all varying in lily pad size, flower shape, flower color, pad variegation, and at what point during the day their bloom opens. Water lilies provide shade and great coverage for fish to hide under.
Submerged plants

Submerged plants, also known as oxygenators, replenish the oxygen at the bottom of the pond where oxygen is needed the most. This is essential for keeping a balanced ecosystem. Fishalso love to eat submerged plants. It provides great spawning media for fish to lay their eggs.

The natural way to control Algae



Is to use floating plants, which provide shade, and they absorb the nutrients out of the water that the algae needs to grow. The better shade you give your pond the less algae you'll have.

Fish should only be fed a couple times a week. Fish will eat algae, so there is no need to feed them a large quantity of food packed with nutrition that will turn directly into ammonia. Ammonia will cause murky water.

The best chemical way to remove Algae



Green Clean kills algae on impact. It is safe for fish, frogs, tadpoles, and snails (as long as the powder is not applied directly on the frogs or tadpoles slimy skin).

Clearing brown murky water the natural way is just a matter of having enough roots to hold the dirt together. For this method, use water lilies and shelf plants. If dealing with a liner-based pond that has murky water, use gravel to anchor the dirt in pots.
