Brettski, where'd you rent the "post hole" digger?

Newest pictures showing the water level and the temporary dam I put in to hold back the water until I put in an Agri-Drain system.

Latest pictures of my ponds.

There has been a lot of rain up here this spring, and the ponds are about 1 ft higher.

I'm in the process of installing an aeration windmill. Hopefully I can get it to work with all the trees around me.

nice place


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

I've heard that an aerator can help control duckweed growth.

Also this site about duckweed says that many animals will eat duckweed and keep it in check. Im thinking of combining fish with an aerator and hopefully I wont be skimming every few days.

The site also has some other ideas for controlling duckweed but doesn't really say what works or what is the best way to go about it. Suggestions? Anyone know a site with better info about duckweed?

Welcome to the forum! How big is your pond, and what are your goals for it?

I've found that while the animals and fish listed on that site will eat duckweed, none of them will eat enough of it to control it unless that is the only thing that is available for them to eat.

Diquat when sprayed on duckweed according to the label, does a good job.

Nice piece of land you got there! It's interresting to note that the tree in the "island" survived. You just never know what they will do.

Satellite

I don't know if other states have such a resource.

The last sat pic in my pdf there is actually from Google Earth, as they had the newest pic I could find.

I normally use that link above, plus zillow.com, and Google Earth to see who has the latest pictures.
