A New Zealnd Pond Sep 5, 2007
I used Interpet Products available from my local garden centre and I decided to check out some of the books advertised with their products and so ordered the "Your Healthy Garden Pond". I have read this book and found it a very useful reference,easy to read and with good illustrations. I would recommend it to anyone with a small garden pond.
Must Read for a Healthy Pond Aug 12, 2007
This is a very good book for those who already have a pond. It does not get into the design and construction of ponds, but concentrates on maintaining the pond you have. This is exactly what I was looking for. I did not need to design or construct a pond; however, I did need the knowledge to maintain an existing pond, and this book fit the bill perfectly.
It covers: * Water quality - the nitrogen cycle and what tests you need to perform * Filtration - types of filters, filter media, cleaning filters * Algae and plants - types of plants and how to grow them, how to contain algae * Fish - the different types of fish suitable for a pond and how to diagnose problems * Pond cleaning - when and how to clean the pond * Seasonal maintenance. - fall and winter preparations
Also this book is illustrated with many full color pictures so you can see clearly what the author is talking about.
