Garden owners in particular are looking forward to warmer temperatures and the first pleasant days of spring. After a long, grey winter, warming sunlight and fresh greenery can really sooth the soul. Soon the frogs will be leaving their winter quarters and reoccupying the ponds. The first flowers with their pink and yellow blooms provide an enjoyable prospect of the summer to come. Now is the best time to engage in spring cleaning in your garden and awaken your Living Pool or Swimming Ponds from its hibernation.
The first thing to do in spring is to brush and vacuum the walls and bottom of the pool basin, ideally using a silt vacuum cleaner. The died-off water and wetland plants should be cut back and removed as well. Depending on your region and weather, the filter circuit can now be started up again. And beginning in April, the water plants can be fertilised regularly. Tip: A special fertilising lance for water lilies is available from Biotop. Swimming Ponds require more extensive maintenance every three to five years. The focus of this activity is the proper functioning of the regeneration area. Now is also the best time to complete the annual checking of your pond or pool’s technical components, or to realise any changes you may have planned.
