Follow our step-by-step plan for a virtually maintenance-free pond.

    Nadat uw vijver is gegraven is en de folie gelegd (of een kant en klare bank is geïnstalleerd) is het tijd om de vijver in te richten.
    Het resultaat, helder water, biologisch evenwicht zullen er voor zorgen dat u optimaal kunt genieten!
  • Provide a layer of Waterworld pond substrate. This porous rock should be applied in a layer of about 8 to 10 centimeters on the bottom of your pond. We recommend 2 bags of substrate per square meter. This substrate is the foundation of your pond. Do not skimp on this! This soil ensures that any pump and filter less often need to be cleaned by that they are hardly loaded. Your substrate soil is namely a large filter.
  • Put plenty of water lilies in the pond. These water lilies provide shelter for your fish. The water lily leaves also keep the sun out so the water is less warm and there will be less algae growth.
  • Sufficient oxygen plants are very important for balance, clear water and shelter for aquatic life. Oxygen plants also block out the sun. Many oxygen plants will take root in the substrate and will absorb silt and use it as a nutrient so these plants will grow well. Our recommendation is 5 pieces per 1000 gallons of water.
  • Marsh plants with a good root system will filter the water and also reduce waste products in the water. We have selected the right species for you. Through our experience we know exactly which plants are the best and also hardy. Our advice is 4 pieces per square meter.
  • Floating plants is are the last plants to block the sun. These are mostly decorative as well.
  • Bacteria should be added to start a new pond. If you have an existing pond you should start it up in the spring as well. Our advice is to use 2 Clearzyme Block per 1000 liters of water.
