I'm read that fencing around outside of pond will make it less attrative to geese to use the Pond in spring. I have a new pond this Summer and I put this around now so ready it the spring. Is it close enough to shore (about 2 feet away) or need to be closer? Will this help?

Worth a try! But if these are geese that can fly I would think they might just fly in for a landing in the water.

I'm thinking the same thing - if they can fly, why would they care if there's a fence? But hey - let us know how it goes!

Is this a liner pond or a natural? It's a lovely setting!

Well, it should act as a good snow fence! Keeping geese out? Not so much. They might slightly alter their glide path before landing.

Agree with above, it depends how big your pond is if they can land and take off
