Leaves and Debris Cleanout Tips

I am starting to get a lot of leaves and debris in my pond due to the fall season. What is the best way of cleaning this out of my pond?

One of the best ways to clean out your pond is using some sort of beneficial bacteria. The reason for using such bacteria is it breaks down any dead leaves or sediment that may have been built up over the fall season. One of our most popular fall/winter preps is Microbe-Lift Autumn prep. Autumn winter prep contains both liquid which is almost like Microbe-Lift Pl but is designed to work better in the cold winter months, it also contains a packets of powder enzymes that help boost the effects of the liquid. Along with the breakdown of leaves and sediment using a pond net can help from allowing any further build up of leaves in the pond. Using this along with a leaf net will prevent leaves from settling at the bottom of your pond.
