Welcome to Permies Brian!

My short explanation of permaculture is "food growing outside your back door is better than food you buy in a store".

Ever since I got my Egyptian Walking Onions established, I haven't had to buy green onions at the store. With my backyard chickens, I don't buy eggs at the store either. And so it goes.

Howdy Brian, welcome to permies.

In permaculture we try not to use chemicals or toxins to kill "weeds".
Because most weeds serve a purpose in nature.
Here at permies we try to study what mother nature is trying to teach us and work with her .

ok,,,i'm with you there...so,,,tell me how to get rid of a pond choked up with water lillys? i tried to find a way, short of pulling with my hands..do not have the time for that...i have a full time ++ ot job, fish eat the lillys, but i would have to dump a couple of thousand fish in there to do it..
i even looked into a coy fish....but nhe would take over and kill the other fish...and,,to much weeds anyway
any suggestions to get rid of weeds, without 2-4-d broad leaf,,,will be looked at and thought over seriously....i do not want to add to the chemical problem either
but.....no alternatives?

Hi Brian,
I don't know anything about pond ecology, but plenty here do.
I suggest starting a 'dealing with waterlilies' type thread here

Brian, what is your plan for the pond?
How big/deep is it?
Are there fish in it now?
Is it spring fed? Does water flow out of it?
