One of the most common problems is ponds going green. This is a natural process which can, however, be controlled.

There are many reasons why the pond may go green from algae. Here are the most common ones:

  • Too much sunlight exposure
  • Not enough plants
  • Too much fish in the pond
  • Plant waste affecting water colouration
  • Chemical water imbalance

The most common reason is that green algae are actually a plant competing with your pond plants for food.  Testing water, removing some of the algae and bringing back the balance will sort this problem.
