Pond Plants Floating

Floating pond plants significantly add to to the aesthetics of any type of pond but not only do they look good they also perform some vital functions.

Firstly by covering part of the water surface they reduce light penetration so this can help reduce nuisance algae, green water and blanket weed. They also combat algae by using Phosphates and nitrates as they grow leaving less excess nutrient for algae to use.

Finally the play a role in thermo-regulation of the pond water by shielding the pond from sunlight, especially important in the late spring to late summer months.
