Spring - summer - autumn and winter
Here’s how to maintain your pond through all the seasons of the year
The 4 seasons at a glance
What maintenance do you need?
Let’s give some thought to the seasons. This will save you problems and often money, too! Maintenance carried out in one season can have a serious impact in the following season!
The seasons according to the earth’s latitude
Different seasons require different care. This is the case in Central Europe at least. But even in countries where there are no cold winters with minus temperatures, factors like rainy seasons, dry seasons or perhaps a summer with particularly high temperatures all play a decisive role for the garden pond.
Mediterranean region and subtropics
Generally the seasons in Mediterranean regions don’t differ significantly to those in the temperate climate zones, except that the summers are much warmer and drier (winter rainfall areas) and in winter periods of heavy frosts are quite rare. The most important differences concern the summer and winter months.
Tropics and desert countries
Here the seasons are different to these in Central Europe. They are usually divided roughly into the rainy season and the dry season.
