Default Walnut Leaves Discoloration

My very small pond is located under some large walnut trees and the
leaves that fall cause the water to be very dark. Other than covering
the pond with netting, does anyone have some other suggestion?

Netting the pond is the only way I know to keep leaves
out of the water. Most of us
on this group net our ponds in the fall of the year.

My large pond is unfortunately placed, close to a huge, old black walnut,
and I very much feel your pain!


My pond is directly under the neighbor's black walnut tree. In addition to
the husks, whole walnuts, and leaves, these trees have a very annoying
trait: they drop entire fronds of leaves at once, and the central stems,
usually a foot long, sink to the bottom of my pond, bypassing the skimmer.
It is annoying, but at least my pond is small. I go out every day, once or
twice, and grab them out of the pond. Being blessed wth gin-clear water all
year makes this far less painful than it might be.

You could got thru huge amount of carbon to clear the water, better is the
net. Then there is always a ground level pruning cut. ;o) ~ jan

I can top that. I have Pecan trees in my yard. In the Spring I have the
discoloration from the Pecan flowers and the trees are dropping limbs all
year. Not just little ones, right now I have one limb about 5 inches in
diameter and about 9 feet long in the yard from last week and this weekend
one dropped that is about 11 inches in diameter and about 25 feet long.
Around my ponds though it is not too bad except the webworms have been bad
to a lot of worm poop keeps raining down on my ponds. So far around my
ponds only small limbs have fallen in, only two to 4 feet long.


Oh my! You win, you win!!!!! But, have I told you the story of the mole I
foolishly rescued from drowning in my skimmer? ;-)
