Fall is right around the corner here in North Carolina and leaves are already starting to fall in many areas. Now is the the time to install a net over your water garden or koi pond to keep the leaves from clogging your system. There are several options for installing a net. The first is to stretch a flat net over the water. This is relatively easy to install but you will need to remove the leaves that accumulate on the top so it does not droop into the water. This method is less visible as seen in the photo below. The second option is to craft a dome frame structure with PVC to deter the leaves away from the pond.
