Barley straw is considered to be the most effective product available on today's market for garden pond clarification.
It is totally safe for:

  • Fish
  • Pondlife
  • Aquatic plants, and even children
  • Contains only natural active ingredients
  • Treats up to 1000 Gallons
  • High surface area for more efficient breakdown
  • Works on duck weed
Being such an environmentally sound product, unlike the alternative array of chemicals on the market it is also totally child safe.
Repeated experiments have proven this simple solution to be effective in control of algae, blanket weed, and green water problems.
Very simple to apply and maintain - quite literally you remove the plastic outer packaging, and put it in your pond. The best time to start using this is the beginning of spring, however, there is absolutely no reason not to start as soon as possible.

As the temperatures begin to rise after the cold of winter, the conditions become right for algae and weed growth to begin. This is the time the natural decomposition of the straw micro-organisms give rise to algal inhibitors (hydrogen peroxide) which help to dramatically reduce the levels of Nitrate and Phosphate in the water

"Barley straw... now recognised as the only effective product that can safely be used in ponds" Chris Beardshaw, 3 little gems, Daily Mail 14/05/05

As with all things, it is best to give your pond the best possible chance, therefore at time of installation, we would recommend manually removing any surface weed, and where possible cleaning the bottom of the pond. This should leave you with an excellently crisp clear pond for a whole season.

Unlike the old barley straw bag the new flakes are designed to quickly absorb water and sink leaving little or no surface debris.

For this we recommend using our Hand Operated Pond Silt Remover - CLICK HERE and Pond Vac - CLICK HERE.
