Northwest Ohio's Natural Pond & Lake Resource
Welcome to Inspired By Nature
Natural Pond Management is not difficult nor is it more expensive than conventional chemical treatments. Most chemical treatments treat a symptom opposed to going directly to the root of the problem. At Inspired By Nature, we have discovered over many years that all ponds are similar yet unique as well. There are numerous variables that can contribute to many pond woes. What may have adverse effects on one pond may only cause a minimal effect on the neighbors pond only a few hundred feet away. Our ponds are much like us, very similar in design but affected differently by various stimulus.
Our philosophy on pond management really comes down to one thing - nutrients. The more nutrients you have available for plant and algae growth the more out of control your pond becomes. Aesthetically, we'd all like a nice pristine, algae free pond with clear water. (You need to recall you are dealing with a NATURAL ecosystem that ebbs and flows with its surroundings, reacts to weather, addition of chemicals and being out of balance.) You can achieve a balanced pond that is quite stunning and desirable using our philosophies.
Chemicals may get rid of nuisance plants from your line of sight but what happens to that dead debris? It simply goes to the bottom and rots up to become new nutrients for more plants and algae - exactly what you don't want to see in your pond. All that muck at the bottom of your pond is comprised of dead and decaying debris. Without the use of proper bottom aeration, a good blend of microbes and debris removal, that muck sits and adds layer after layer that accumulates and eventually fills in your pond. Not to mention the nutrients that are released in the water that can become more food for plant material - however, if you redirect those nutrients up the animal side of the food chain you'll decrease the available nutrients for plants and algae.
Natural Pond Management is what we do every day and we pride ourselves on helping thousands of customers over the years. Many of our customers have been with us since we began and we do our best to keep them happy and continue to research and develop products that are natural, safe and affordable.
