A pond can serve as a unique addition to your garden and can enable you to add a variety of aquatic plants to your landscaping. If you live in a climate that is cold during the winter, it is essential that you prevent your pond from freezing if you have any kind of fish living in it or have pipes connected to the pond that can freeze and burst. Keeping your garden pond from freezing is moderately easy to do.
Add insulation to the walls of your pond to help the water retain heat. It is easiest to insulate the pond during construction, but you can insulate your already constructed pond by draining the water, putting up the insulation and then refilling the pond.
Keep your pond filter and pump running throughout the colder months of the year when the water is most likely to freeze. The filter and pump will keep the water in the pond moving at a constant rate, which will decrease the likelihood of the water freezing.
