      "BUFFER ZONES"
      If you haven't already planted a buffer zone along the water's edge, this may be the year to begin thinking about it.  If you find this unappealing, the next best thing is to leave about two feet of unmowed grass along the edge of the pond.  This will help to collect sediment from your property and stop it from draining into the pond.  It will not be as effective as a planted buffer zone but definitely better than nothing.

        "PETS"
        The weather is warmer and everyone's thinking of going outside to take inventory of the wind and snow damage to their yards and houses.
        Getting outdoors to walk our dogs and get some exercise is so relaxing this time of year.  Unfortunately, our dogs have a tendency to leave their mark along the sidewalks or beaches, wherever or whenever nature calls. 


            This is a well trained dog!
