Remember to Enjoy Yourself

There is no doubt that owning a pond comes with its fair share of maintenance.  That required maintenance can sometimes be a bit burdensome (especially in the heat of summer).  In the name of safety, please use your best judgment as to the degree of maintenance you can perform yourself, and what time of day you do it.  Be sure to take plenty of breaks, and drink lots of water.

Aside from the effort of maintenance, we encourage you to keep the perspective that this is your chosen hobby, so you should enjoy yourself.  It can become easy to get “bogged” down by maintenance, but if you find yourself getting frustrated, just take a moment to reflect and imagine your yard without the magic of your pond.  You’ll probably decide that it is worth the effort, and you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor that much more.
