Weeds can become a problem in a pond run without chemical additives. They are easy to manually remove if you keep a pool net around and compost nicely in your bin or pile of organics. Invasive species may find the consistently moist region in and around a pond an attractive place to set up housekeeping but vigilant pulling and skimming will keep any problems down to a dull roar. Barley straw is effective in ponds that have been overrun with algae or neglected. It releases hydrogen peroxide, a natural substance, as it decays which kills off the algae. Leave it in the pond for a week or so and then skim it out to prevent excess silt as it composts.
It can be easy to forget a hose, especially if you usually count on the rain to help to water your lawn. Still, a nice quality hose can go a long way toward keeping your lawn green and pristine. You’ll want to water your lawn once or twice a week when your yard hasn’t seen rain. Thoroughly soaking the grass will help encourage it to grow more aggressive roots and stay healthier. If you don’t want to be outside holding your hose, you can always invest in sprinklers. You can either buy the ones that attach to your hose and rotate around your garden or have an entire sprinkler system installed. They both have their pros and cons, so choose based on your needs.
