here to see our selection of Pond rake.
A pond rake
is like a swimming pool skimmer net. It can be used daily to get rid
of leaves or other debris that may be floating or growing on your pond.
Simply run the rake across the surface of your pond to get rid of unsightly
debris that may threaten the life of your pond.
Autumn is the time of year when a pond rake comes most in handy. After
all, although beautiful, fall leaves can potentially add extra burden
your pond pumps and filters. As they sink and break down, autumn leaves
and debris can clog your filters so that they will not work as well.
Algae will become more abundant. Your pond will not be as healthy.
Keep your pond healthy by readily removing leaves and other organic
debris from the top of your pond, using a pond rake.
Pond netting is also a good alternative to pond rakes – it requires
less work from you, but it is slightly less aesthetically pleasing.
Just place the fine mesh netting over your pond. Leaves will not be
able to fall through.
