    Our 10'x13' pond is currently covered with flowering cherry blossoms! They go right thru the netting as do the little cattail things off the oak trees. Has anyone ever used window screening as a way to keep things out of their ponds? Planning on building 2 frames from rigid PVC to make it easier to lift off and clean. The trees are beautiful at this time of the year but I'm ready to CUT THEM DOWN!! Any input would be appreciated.
