Spring Clean Out Services

Spring is just around the corner and it is time to schedule your annual clean out service!  Below is a brief description of the services we offer.

Spring Clean Out:

We safely store fish and aquatic plants in temporary aerated tank, drain pond, power clean rocks and falls, hand pick debris, clean pump, filter pads, brushes, and other filtration systems.  Also apply necessary chemicals for start-up including de-chlorinator, beneficial bacteria, and algaecide (where applicable).  Dispose collected waste, perform routine maintenance inspection, and start-up pond.

Invasive Plant Removal:

If your pond has been overrun by invasive plants, you may require a more in-depth clean out.  This service includes all the services of our spring clean out, as well as the tear out of overgrown plants. Due to the nature of this type of clean out different rates and charges apply.

Pond Start-Up:

While we always recommend a professional clean out to begin each new season, sometimes you are only looking for help to install your winterized pump. We are happy to get your system up and running, and will identify immediate problems (broken line, damaged pump, skimmer box damage, etc.) should any exist.

Wildlife at the Pond

One of the great things about owning a natural water feature is the opportunity to get close to all the beautiful wildlife Colorado has to offer.  We recently captured this image of a majestic bird of prey enjoying a water feature we built earlier in the year of 2015.

Its a raptor and most likely a “Red Tail Hawk.” Very Cool.

WOTR Summer/Fall 2014 Round Up

Sunset is approaching and so is fall.  The lights in the pond along with the structure bring comfort.

Commercial projects are big, but we handle those as well.  All aquatic plants seen were earlier established by WOTR, and are continually maintained by us.  Year in and year out.

Water on the Rocks is more than just ponds.  Fundamentally we love anything that utilizes stone and natural materials to create the landscape of your dreams.  An example of our hard set flagstone work.
This is a flagstone patio we installed mid summer.  Not only do we build water features but install hard-scapes and other landscaping as well.

Fall

Its almost safe to say that we have made it through the fall foliage, finally!  However all that organic material will continue to pester us for several more weeks.  You may have noticed that the color of your water is brown.  This is normal.  Not only from leaves but the dust and dirt blown around by fall will have a noticeable impact.  Stay patient and your ponds will clear up.

Your Koi Deserve A Little Treat Every Now And Then

Just like humans your Koi will benefit from a healthy diet. Koi enjoy lettuces & oranges which are good sources of vitamin C, essential for growth and reproduction. Make the portions small enough for the fish to eat and remove any leftovers of food not consumed. Do YOU like garlic?? guess what your Koi do too. A little minced fresh garlic mixed with their food will entice hand feeding and promote a healthy slime coat. These foods will excite and stimulate your fish and give you more enjoyment with your happy pets in your pond.
