Product Description

Green Vista Water Gardens Barley Pond Straw employs the all natural qualities of barley straw to deter algae in water and on surfaces. It works in a variety of waterscapes, including small ponds on farms and golf courses, detention ponds and retention ponds.

Barley straw is safe for the plants, Koi and other fish that call your backyard pond home. It is also safe to use with both pets and livestock making barley straw bales not only great to use in water gardens but also in large mud bottom farm or fishing ponds.


Application Rate:

Place this barley straw in shallow water in a sunny location; putting it in a stream, waterfall or near constant water movement is ideal.
For the best results, split each barley straw bale into smaller, 8 to 16 ounce clumps and space them along the pond's or other waterscape's perimeter.

Recommended application is approximately 8 oz per 1,000 gallons of water. For best results, it is recommended to reapply this application every 4 to 6 months.

It is suggested to use a mesh bag or similar to place straw into when it is positioned around the pond.

One 3 pound bale treats up to 3,000 gallons of water for 10 to 12 months. 

Four bales can treat up to a ¼ acre pond for 6 months.
Six bales can treat up to a ½ acre pond for 6 months.


Note: weight is approximate. Weight may vary 5-10%!
