It’s pool opening time in the Northeast! Natural pools require a special kind of maintenance in the spring to ensure they are ready for the coming swimming season. In addition to cleaning out swimming area and regeneration zones of debris that ha accumulated over the winter, some replanting may also be necessary to supplement the perennial aquatic plants. Over time, the regeneration zone becomes more and more ecologically stable to the point where very little (if any) replanting is necessary.
Pictured above, an Eastern Gray Tree Frog patiently waits while we get the pool and regeneration zone up and running.
