Pond Desilting, Suffolk

Category: Pond Cleaning

Our client contacted us as he had a natural clay lined pond in his garden in desperate need of cleaning out, the pond had a few fish, and lots of crayfish.

The pond was over 100 years old, and no one knew when the pond was last cleaned out. The water level had reduced dramatically as the silt had built to such a high level the fish had very little room to swim.

After a week’s worth of digging out the silt with the machinery, most of the silt had been removed, and once refilled the fish were more than happy to be returned to the pond with their renewed swimming area.

One of the most mucky clean outs is pond desilting, but good fun to do and incredibly satisfying once complete.
