Eco-System – My sprinklers cause water to run in to my pond, how does that effect my eco-system?

Sometimes water and soil may flow into your pond from rain or sprinkler systems. Use your hose to test the edges of your pond and make sure that the water is being diverted around your pond, not in it. Never use lawn fertilizer or insecticides on trees around your pond or on areas of your property that will drain towards your pond. Lawn fertilizer and insecticides will cause large nutrient blooms and will severely threaten the aquatic life inside your pond and may be harmful to your aquatic friends.
