Product Information

Barley Straw is the perfect way of controlling blanket weed. 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.

Key Features:

  • Mini treats 4500 litres (1000 gallons).
  • Midi treats 9000 litres (2000 gallons).
  • Maxi treats 13500 litres (3000 gallons).
  • 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.

Sizes:

  • Mini Bale 30cm x 17cm x 13cm.
  • Midi Bale 38cm x 18cm x 12cm.
  • Maxi Bale 42cm x 30cm x 14cm.

    It was neatly packed and easy to use. I have put it in my pond, there seems to be a little improvement but it needs longer to show the full benefit.
