Water Garden Winterizing

Preparing a pond for winter is just as important as spring preparation. All of the debris should be removed from your water garden, especially if you have fish. We prefer creating an aeration system to heaters, but either or both is an option. Your pump should be removed if you are not going to use it for aeration. Storing it indoors in distilled water will prolong its life.

Hardy potted plants should be pruned flush with their container and put into the deepest part of the pond.
