Maintaining a healthy fish population is one objective that most pond owners have in common. A great way to strengthen your forage base and create a balanced fish population is through supplemental feeding. Including an automatic fish feeder into your pond management approach will provide a secondary food source to grow your forage fish and will increase their survival and reproduction success. As bait productivity improves and a self-sustaining forage base is established, the pond’s fish population will become more balanced and the entire ecosystem will benefit.
With winter in full effect, your water garden is going to experience some ice buildup. Nothing to worry about! Keep your pump running constantly to keep the water circulating. This will keep your pond from completely freezing over allowing harmful gases to escape.
Taking a few steps this winter to manage your pond correctly can provide better fish production this spring. Adding lime and providing artificial structure are two important pond maintenance tips for pond owners to consider this winter. Continue reading Two Additions for Your Pond This Winter

As we move into fall, it is important to think about the health of our pond’s water. Aeration is a great way to ensure any water feature stays healthy. As leaves fall into the water and plants die back, nitrogen levels will increase. One of the best combatants for nitrogen is aeration.
It’s about time for those fall cleanouts with the season approaching and those leaves swooping down into your beautiful water features. No need to worry, Triangle Pond Management has all the tools and knowledge to keep your water garden looking pristine.
During this time of the year preventive maintenance is the best maintenance, such as adding a net before leaves or branches take over the pond. With the lower temperatures, fall becomes a safer environment to remove fish and reintroduce them to the pond once the cleanout is completed.
A full cleanout normally consists of:
- Removal of Leaf Debris
- Power Washing Rocks
- Thinning and Re-potting of Plants
- Cleaning of Filters
- Netting and PVC Dome Installations (which will last for many years to come)
- Much More
After the clean out is complete, and your water feature is in optimal condition. The best way to keep your water feature as flawless as when we left, is to join one of our maintenance programs. We offer Bi- weekly, monthly, quarterly etc. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your fall cleanout or the best route to take to prevent a pond full of dead leaves and debris. Don’t hesitate to come by our pond supply store; we’re open Monday-Friday 9-4:30.

Recently we had the pleasure of building a water garden in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. This was the first water garden build for three of our employees: office manager Joshua Roark, repairs crew field supervisor Logan Green, and our new water garden technician Colby Pittman. Our water garden manager, Andrew Murphy, led the team.
This project provided an exceptional cross-training opportunity and the customer could not have been happier with the finished product. Andrew’s leadership and veteran knowledge helped immensely with the rookie crew. Logan’s exceptional work with the mini excavator made the digging process and boulder-moving a breeze. For Josh, this was an excellent opportunity to see what goes on in the field and learn the tools of the trade to better assist both current and future customers with their aquatic needs.
The water garden build was not without its work-arounds. Early into the dig process we had to move current irrigation lines or they would have been in the middle of the water feature. We used this minor setback to our advantage by trenching and setting both the irrigation line and the hose for the water feature in the same process. The customer could not have been happier with her beautiful new water garden and the outstanding service she received.
Contact us to get started on your new water garden.

Recently, the City of Raleigh asked us to do aeration for Lake Benson. We were able to provide efficient aeration for the 8.5 acre portion of the lake surrounding the water treatment plant with 16 diffusers and a custom stainless steel manifold unlike any other system installed in NC.
Aeration is important for your lake or pond because it:
- increases the dissolved oxygen content of the water throughout the pond / lake
- reduces algae and saves money by reducing treatments
- enhances water quality by stabilizing pH, reducing alkalinity, and removing carbon dioxide
- reduces Phosphorus (P) concentrations in ponds
- is aesthetically pleasing
- increases aquatic habitat such as beneficial plants and fish
