A garden needs some sort of water feature to make it perfect. In this article, I share how I am using Barley Straw Treatments in my small pond to help control algae.

Below is the video I put together featuring my small Koi garden pond I have in my 20′ Geodesic Bio-Dome.

The Barley Straw
I found this great article on Penn State about Barley Straw for Algae Control. The pond guy says that using barley dates back 100’s of years ago to acre farm ponds in Europe.
Interested in trying some in your pond? I found mine at Menards but you can also order them on Amazon.
In The Pond
Here are a few of my photos taken during this video update featuring the pond located in the 20′ geodesic biodome greenhouse garden.
