Pond Stream Management
In medieval times, villagers threw corn in to ponds as part of ceremonies and rituals to ensure the purity of the village water. In the last few centuries, Barley straw has been used to promote clear, clean water conditions in ponds, ditches and streams.
Have you ever seen bales of straw stacked up where the water flow to pond or stream is, and wondered why they are there? The answer may be for erosion control; but more likely to control the quality of the water. When the straw begins to break down, it releases enzymes that promote naturally healthy water conditions.
Barley straw in particular has been found to be a more effective than other straws such as maize, linseed, and wheat, and the use of barley straw will not harm plant life or fish, except where too much barley straw is used in too small an area of water. This is because Barley Straw Pellets are environmentally-responsible as they are natural and chemical free.
We at Enviro Energy have decided to begin to produce Barley Straw Pellets as we feel they provide all the advantages of using Barley Straw without the hassles and mess of other products such as bales, pillows, and pads.
You may purchase direct at our plant in Wells Bridge or at various retail markets. Contact us for more information.
