Product Information

Barley Straw is the perfect way of controlling blanketweed. Not only is it effective, it's also completely natural. Our bales are the perfect size for a variety of ponds.

Algae can be a real problem left unchecked. Blanket weed can quickly spread over your pond and stop vital light and oxygen from getting through. It can block drainage, ruin the look of the pond and cause unpleasant odours to permeate the garden.

Barley Straw is a cheap and environmentally friendly way to combat algae. As it breaks down, algae busting chemicals are released into the water. Microbes consume the nutrients that algae thrive on too, so it stops any further outbreaks.

The bales treat: Mini: 4500 litres (1000 gallons), Midi: 9000 litres (2000 gallons) and Maxi: 13500 litres (3000 gallons) for 6 months in total.

Sizes:

  • Mini Bale 20cm x 12cm x 13cm
  • Bumper Bale 40cm x 18cm x 14cm
  • Mega Bale 40cm x 35cm x 18cm

Another product you could try is Swell Control Blanket Weed which also contains Barley Straw.

Key Features:

  • Comes complete with net bag for easy handling.
  • Lasts up to 6 months.
  • Effective method of controlling blanket weed and green water in pools.
  • Completely natural, environmentally friendly and safe to all aquatic pond life.

    Started using these 3 years ago in a new pond; never had any problem with blanket weed, though unfortunately, they don't clear sludge (and don't claim to).
