Fall cleaning question
You are really hoping for a cool front! I'm up here in Lorain County and
suffering in 90 degree heat with astronomical humidity and tropical dew
points. You're only about 45 minutes away from me, and I doubt we'll see 50
degrees anytime soon.
Hope I'm wrong!!
Anyway, get a net for your leaves...I use the black mesh "floating" net, but
pull it taut over my little pond and hold it with rocks. Draining and
cleaning a pond is asking for trouble; you will lose any balance you may
have as well as beneficial bacteria and side algal growth.
The rest of the ponders here will give you more complete advice,
