The weeds throughout the rock beds were getting far too dense and it really looked bad in an otherwise interesting yard. My pond, unlike many others, has no fish. The pond serves two primary purposes: 1) It is situated just in front of my bee hives, so the bees will have water without invading the neighbor's pool 2) Grow duckweed to feed my aquaponics fish and my chickens. If you have a pond, be sure to read my friends article below about an easy inexpensive way to filter better.
