Mike Holmes on Problems Of Unmaintained Ponds & Why Pondscaping Is Important?


We’ve all heard of landscaping, but pondscaping takes it to a whole other level.  It’s not just about making your backyard look nice; it’s about creating a balanced ecosystem that supports living organisms and animals while keeping your pond healthy. When I found myself battling a weed infestation in my pond, I called in the experts, and Nick and Joe DeMarco from WeedsBGone came to my rescue. They educated me on the hazards of overgrown weeds and algae, which may disrupt the delicate balance of the pond’s environment. We investigated the negative consequences on wildlife populations, and believe me, it’s not something we want to see happen.

In this podcast episode, I take a deep dive into the world of pondscaping with Nick and Joe. Let’s just say I learnt a lot from them about the importance of maintaining a healthy pond and effective weed removal methods to combat those stubborn weeds and restore life to your pond. They also shared some valuable tips to keep your own pond in top shape and the importance of pondscaping for public ponds and lakes and how it can directly impact you. This episode is a must-listen.
