??What is the best way to remove the dead weeds from a pond?? I recently lost a large pond herbicide bid to a higher price because the company also removed the weeds two weeks after they sprayed the pond. So My Question is. When you first treat a pond, What is the best way to remove dead weeds from a pond?? I fear using a Bush Blade on a weed eater because when the bush blade hits the water it sometimes fly out of control. I don't plan on doing the actual work myself, I would hire day labor and want to be sure they are safe.
