We recently spent loads of money for pond supplies so I wanted to go on a little budget for decorations, predator control like raccoons, etc.
What are some tips and tricks do you guys have for keeping a pond lovely looking?
and will Nite Guard be good at keeping raccoons away from swimming in my pond and tearing up stuff?
What kind of products would you guys prefer for your pond, Thanks! :)

I use a net to protect my pond from predators and a small wire fence that the net attaches to at the bottom. Never heard of Nite Guard. If you make your pond edge deep w/no entry steps for them to get in easy that can help deter them.

Per the net it is a flashing light that scares the critters. Might work, but they might also learn it does not harm them.

I used to spend a lot of money on pond products to keep the water clear, now I'm saving hundreds of $$ by simply adding as many plants as I can fit and rinsing the mechanical filter pads every couple of days
