Early Spring Clean For Pond

Pond clearanceToday we took advantage of some rare good weather to give the walled garden’s wildlife pond its annual clean up. We removed excess reeds and other plants to stop the pond getting choked up with weed. The vegetation is left on the bank overnight to allow any aquatic animals to return to the water. Work is carried out now so we don’t disturb spawning amphibians.
