The Bermuda brand is back! That's the great news GardenSite partner Andrew Hall has received from Bob Meacham, National Accounts Manager for the new owners Evolution Aqua.
When the leaves start falling from the trees it is essential to cover your pond with netting. Here Dan Everton describes the different types of pond netting that will prevent leaves having a detrimental effect on pond water and wildlife.
If you allow leaves to fall to the bottom of the pond they will rot, releasing nitrates and noxious gases into the water harming fish and plant life.
Netting also protects any fish you may have from predators such as herons and cats, and once plants have grown through, the netting largely disappears from view.
Our most popular pond netting with 1.5cm mesh is dark green to blend in with the surroundings and is available in a variety of sizes from 3 mtrs x 2mtrs to 10 mtrs x 6 mtrs. Bermuda and Blagdon offer similar sized netting and pegs are available to buy separately.
Unobstrusive Child Safety Netting is made from durable 4mm high density polyethylene braid that is UV stabilised and comes in ocean blue or coal jet black. The mesh size is designed to prevent trapping a toddler's head but large enough to limit a child's movement. Available in many sizes up to 10 mtrs x 6 mtrs.
The Oase AquaNet Pond Cover, that measures 3 mtrs x 4 mtrs is naturally weather resistant and comes complete with pegs that fix easily to the ground.
With high winds increasingly affecting most parts of Britain, many people are likely to be contacting their insurance companies regarding damage caused to sheds, greenhouses, fences and other garden property. Robert Hall explains how GardenSite can help with an insurance quote and claim.
With gardens becoming smaller, neighbours closer and roads busier, we all suffer from different types of noise pollution. But, as Andy Taylor reports, Forest have now come up with a new kind of fencing that minimizes this nuisance.

Dan Everton helps you look after your pond during the February with some tips on the precautions you can take to avoid the water freezing over, and advice on keeping fish at this time of the year.
