How we revived our pond: make your own wildlife haven this summer



After              A wildlife pond is one of the single best features for attracting new wildlife to the gardenThe Wildlife Trust

Every year at microbz HQ we have a wealth of wildlife around our ponds: herons, goslings, tadpoles and damselflies. The variety never ceases to amaze us (you may even have caught sight of our fluffy goslings on Instagram).

Having said that, there are times when it feels like all our best efforts are in vain and the unruly power of nature takes over. For example, this spring, our pond was riddled with blanket weed. A buildup of nutrients and organic matter, alongside a spell of sunshine threw our pond out of balance. To treat this, we used our live culture product Pond Balance packed full of beneficial microbes. After just one dose, the microbes got to work aerating the water and breaking down the excess nutrients. Our solution is 100% chemical free, natural, sustainable and effective - a technology everyone and everything can thrive on.

In just 11 days it was transformed! You too can create a wildlife pond this summer. You may not have realised it, but you're sure to have the tools on hand to create a mini pond. You can transform an old wheelbarrow, washing up bowl or plant pot into a small wildlife haven. What better way to keep the kids entertained this summer than by challenging them to track new wildlife in the garden? Check out the Wildlife Trusts - easy set up guide to a mini pond or this article about different kinds of pond plants. 

Here at microbz, we aim to bring people and nature closer together. There are natural solutions to the environmental and health issues we face and microbes are at the heart of it. Protecting wildlife can help us learn to coexist in harmony with our natural environments. Handy tip: Not only is Pond Balance a solution for algae but it is also the perfect supplement for a new pond. Beneficial microbes in Pond Balance will support, balance and help establish the pond's ecosystem so that wildlife can thrive.
