Installation, Maintenance & Repair of Fountains and Aeration Systems
Keep your water features in top shape with the help of The Grounds Guys. In addition to providing fountain repairs, maintenance, and installation, we offer aeration system services. Aerators keep the water in fountains and ponds healthy by circulating it and adding oxygen. Our licensed experts will be happy to install, maintain, and repair your aeration systems along with your fountains and other water features.
Midge, Gnat, & Mosquito Control
Even a beautiful backyard water feature can attract unwanted insects like mosquitoes, midges, and gnats. Our licensed experts are trained to use various methods to control these annoying pests so you can enjoy your yard without them.
Water Quality Improvement
There’s no doubt that water features enhance your yard and can even improve property value. They also create an atmosphere that makes gardening more fun. However, it’s essential to keep the water quality in your aquatic feature high. Suppose the water in your pond has a foul odour or is becoming a breeding ground for pests. In this situation, a pond aeration system can help eliminate algae and circulate the water to minimize the potential for insects to breed. Contact us today to learn more about installing a quality aeration system for your water feature.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are invasive aquatic plants? What impact can they have on a body of water?
Invasive plants are those that have been introduced into an area they are not native to (where they don’t grow naturally). Invasive plants can negatively impact the ecosystem by preventing oxygen from reaching fish and degrading the water quality where they grow. They can also limit or eliminate the growth of more beneficial plant species that are native to a region.
When is the best time to manage cattails?
We can remove and manage cattails in several ways. Depending on the size of the area and number of cattails that need to be removed, we can remove them manually, with a machine or use a herbicide that kills the root of the plant. Just cutting off the tops will not kill the plant. The root(s) must be removed in order to keep the plant from re-growing. The best time to manage cattails is during later summer and early fall.
Should I leave the water in my fountain all winter?
No. We recommend draining the water from fountains in winter because it can freeze solid and cause considerable damage to your water feature. When the water freezes, it can cause cracks and damage the water pump in your fountain. We can winterize your water features to ensure they make it through the winter and are ready when spring arrives.
