Water Garden – Before…

Water Garden - Before

05/24/2013
BEFORE TREATMENT BEGAN in an area Decorative Water Garden. The pictured Decorative Water Garden is an example of a heavy algae growth that inhibits water clarity. Water clarity is very desirable in a decorative pond or water garden. Total phosphorus and total nitrogen are nutrients that act as fertilizers and promote algae growth in ponds or water gardens. Identifying the specific aquatic weed or algae growth is necessary to get the right product for specific treatment. Water clarity can be measured by lowering a white object in the water until it is no longer visible. When the object disappears in the water, you can then determine the amount of algae or sediment in the water. AN AFTER TREATMENT PICTURE will be posted of the same Decorative Water Garden in the near future.
