Autumn is the season to perform major maintenance to your pond. This will benefit living through winter smoothly and proper development in spring. Anyway, take care that you remove as many died off plant parts and leaves blown into the pond as possible. The fewer nutrients in the pond, the smaller the risk of algae.
A cover net will prevent leaves and branches from being blown into the pond in autumn. Applying a cover net will also help deter herons and different intruders. In winter, supply of food for herons is limited. Fish are moving less quickly in cold water, so that is why they are an easy prey.
During your absence you will have to protect your fish of course to the best of your ability. By stretching the net your fish will be protected against intruders. The cover net is very finely-woven. Almost all leaves and branches will be catched by the net, which makes the effectiveness of the net optimum.
The cover net is laying nearly invisibly on the water surface, so that you can continue and enjoy your water garden.
