Country Living With A Pond
What a dream it is to have possession of your very own body of water! Spending my life living in suburban environments, the largest body of water on our quarter acre lot was a trash can sized water puddle that developed during intense rain storms. Having a pond on our property to fish was a life aspiration from way back to boyhood. In fact, as children we would wonder several neighborhood streets over, skirt around a broken fence line and stick or drag our poles into mucky water only inches deep harboring exaggerated hopes of nabbing any type of aquatic animal. On Christmas vacations we would often visit Vermont where my mother’s sister lived with her family. One of the highlights was the 30 foot(ish) pond in the middle of their rectangular acre spread where my cousins dwelled. It was pure, sublime joy to approach that gleaming round water basin, frozen over with tundra covering of winter, and put my blades on for a round of awkward ice skating in the New England wild. Alas, I’ve always enjoyed ponds on other people’s land. Still without possession of my own, I borrow enjoyment from other land owners in Conroe, Spring, and other areas of Montgomery County, Texas. Close to where I live in Humble, nearby ponds offer the promise of perpetual outdoor play and eye catching scenery a chance for a private fishing afternoon or an opportunity for children to peer into a real life fish bowl. Over time I have learned from my country friends that rural ponds, like backyard pools, require upkeep.
Conroe Ponds Require Maintenance
It’s easy to feel like ponds just stay pristine and perfect situated out in God’s creation through the years. We tend to think they are non-iron, worry free dress shirts that require no special care. Unfortunately this is not the case for rural ponds and naturally occurring bodies of water. Ponds require attention, skillful monitoring and addressing of problems that arise. In short ponds require a professional to prop them up. One trying situation I heard about recently involved a pond in the Conroe area that suffered the loss of all of it’s aquatic life due to a bacterial infection transmitted via livestock on the property. The owner had no indication of the presence of any problem until the devastation was nearly completed. The discovery came during a fishing attempt, when an unfamiliar foul waft drifted over the waters while his teen son attempted to get some nibbles on his line. Disheartened by the lack of bite activity, the father and son investigated for a few minutes before calling One Source Residential Services following a web search. The trusted hydro specialists, with deep pond maintenance experience in The Woodlands were able to immediately diagnose and initiate treatment of the pond premises. It wasn’t overnight, but in short order the pond was successfully treated and life began to return to it’s confines again!
