Greg Grimes discusses stocking costs/prices and proper growth management
Why are you/they pro liner? My pond is 4+acres and that seems expensive as hell. Also, are the better than swimming pool liners because they suck?
Holy shit, 4+ acres is huge.. and yeah, it is gonna be tad bit costly. My dad used firestone pond liner, and it pretty awesome. Here is the thing though, I highly recommend the toughest most durable pond liner you can find, why? Crawfish, especially Louisiana crawfish I think can wreck havoc on a pond imo. But I can talk for days about pond liner for days..
also, cut down all trees within 50-60 yards if possible, nothing is worse than the sediment buildup that builds on the bottom of a pond and gunks it up. Before my dad and I started doing leaf control a few years ago, we had to drain the pond because of a leak, (we have a cave that runs below our pond, hillbilly problems), well when we drained it we had 3+ inches of buildup just from leaves, we had to take out over 2000+ painter buckets of the stuff out before we refilled it and restocked it
I highly recommend coming up here for the conference next year, it is worth it just to be at big cedar lodge.. johnny morris always hooks up the pond boss folks because him and bob lusk are really tight and people that attend get special rates..
But of course this year it has rained non stop since this morning, doesn't look like i'll be able to make it out to the lake this year..
