HEY BUT STILL, YOUR LAWN & GARDEN GOES ON. WE’RE TAKING A LITTLE BREAK HERE. JOHN LETS TALK ABOUT A POND AND HOW TO BEAUTIFY IT AND IS IT POSSIBLE TO KEEP IT WEED FREE?

DEFINITELY DEFIINITEY ITS MAINTENANCE YOU HAVE TO DO WITH A POND. EVERYBODYS SITTING DOWN IN THEIR LAWN CHAIRS LOOKING AT THE POND SAYING WHATS ALL THAT ALGAE, WEEDS OUT THERE. WELL WE HAVE PRODUCTS THAT ARE SAFE FOR THE FISH AND SOME ARE ORGANIC THAT WON’T HURT ANYTHING. SO YOU JUST NEED TO PUT THE PRODUCTS OUT THERE. ONE PRODUCT I SELL A LOT OF IS THAT COPPER SULFATE. IT’LL GET RID OF ANY OF YOUR ALGAE AND MOSSES THAT GROW AROUND THE EDGES AND EVERYTHING. AND WE KNOW HOW TO USE IT , THERE IS A TECHNIQUE. YOU DON’T WANT TO USE IT ALL AT THE SAME TIME BECAUSE YOU COULD HAVE OXYGEN DEPLETION, SO YOU WANT TO USE IT A QUARTER OF A TIME A DAY, ONE TIME EVERY OTHER DAY. YOU PUT IT OUT. THE PRODUCT WORKS GREAT GETTING RID OF THAT. BUT IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT WEEDS GROWING UP IN THERE, WE HAVE THIS PRODUCT RIGHT HERE TSUNAMI. AND IT WORKS GREAT, LIKE I SAID IT DOESN’T HURT FISH OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. IT’S A GREAT PRODUCT. ALSO, WHATS BEEN POPULAR AND REALLY WORKS WELL ARE THE DIFFERENT POND DYES THAT WE HAVE. YOU WANT TO COLOR YOUR WATER?

YES BECAUSE IF YOU DO, SAY YOUR POND IS TOO CLEAR, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF WEED GROWTH COMING OUT OF IT. SO THIS WILL SHADE YOUR POND ALSO GIVE YOU A BLUE COLOR OR YOU CAN GET THE NATURAL IN BLACK.

INTERESTING SO HOLD ON HERE. THE SUN ACTUALLY HELPS THE WEEDS GROW INSIDE YOUR POND?

CORRECT THE SUN MAKES EVERYTHING GROW BUT IF YOU SHADE IT, YOU’RE RETARDING THE GROWTH. SO, IT WORKS GOOD. MOST PEOPLE USE ABOUT A GALLON PER ACRE DEPENDING ON HOW DEEP YOU ARE. IF YOUR POND IS REAL REAL DEEP, YOU MAY HAVE TO USE 2 GALLONS AN ACRE BUT NORMALLY IT’S A GALLON PER ACRE, WORKS GREAT. I ALSO HAVE A LIQUID PRODUCT RIGHT HERE CALLED CRYSTAL PLEX, WHICH IS THE SAME THING AS REALLY YOUR COPPER SULFATE BUT IN LIQUID FORM. SO YOU GO SPRAY IT OUT THERE TO GET RID OF YOUR ALGAES AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

ALRIGHT SO IF YOU’VE GOT A POND IN THE BACK OF YOUR HOUSE, MAYBE EVEN IN THE FRON AND YOU WANT IT TO LOOK BEAUTIFUL, HEAD OVER TO CHASTANT BROTHERS.
