Buying a home with a pond in the back?
The home in located in South Florida and it is on 1.14acres. There is this beautiful pond with rock waterfall in the back When we looked in the pond, there were some brim/bluegill swimming around and I believe algae growth.
My question is, what would be good to put in the pond? plants? fish? animals?
Next to the home is a canal, but the property is fully fenced. We do have 2 dogs as well.
For now, don't do anything. Watch it for a few months and see what it does. Anything you plant in it will take over. If you do decide to put some plants in, keep them in pots. You could plant irises around the edges because they will stay on the shore and not grow in the deeper parts.
You probably have lots of critters in there now, turtles, fish, frogs and more.
You are lucky to have your pond. Keep chemicals out of it and it will give you years of happiness.
