OK...I don't have a pond, but know someone that does and is asking for help (Since my tank doesn't believe in algae thanks to EI). Does anyone have info on controlling algae in a pond?

Re: Ponds and Algae

Hyacinth is the most common weed.
I like Cow lily, lotus etc

Shoot for 50% surface coverage or slightly higher till things get better.
Prune off leaves if they get too big, too much coverage.
