Maintaining a Pond or Wetland
Once a pond or wetland has been constructed and planted, the job is not over. The wetland needs to be managed as it is developing. It is particularly vulnerable in its early stages to drought, large storms, and herbivory.
Managing water levels, ensuing the plants are properly cared for and or irrigated, and assuring the banks also receive water regularly will help establish the vegetation that will stabilize the banks and prevent erosion.
Heavy rainfall or other erosion may result in the banks needing to be reshaped, reseeded, and matting reapplied.
Waterfowl and burrowing animals can damage plants and berms. If a dense vegetative community is established in the first growing season, plant growth will typically outpace losses from wildlife browsing.
