What makes a pond different from a lake?  Both are open bodies of fresh water in a depression in the ground. A pond is usually smaller and shallower than a lake. Because they are shallower than lakes, ponds have plants growing on the bottom of them from one side to the other. Most ponds are less than six or seven feet deep. Plants need sunlight to grow and lakes are usually too deep in the middle for plants to grow on the bottom. The temperature of the water in a pond is usually about the same from the top to the bottom and it changes with the air temperature. In really cold places, ponds can freeze solid from top to bottom!

There are two types of ponds, permanent and temporary. Permanent ponds exist year-round. Temporary or vernal ponds usually develop in the spring when rain and melting snow fill in depressions in the ground.

Plant Identification if your considering homes for sale with ponds

Aquatic plants are generally divided into four groups for management purposes. These groups are the Algae, Floating Plants, Submerged Plants, and Emergent Plants.

planktonic_algae_thumbAlgae are very primitive plants. Some algae are microscopic (planktonic algae), others are thin and stringy or hair-like (filamentous algae), while still others are large and resemble higher plants but without true roots (chara).

giant_salvinia_thumbTrue Floating Plants are not attached to the bottom. Floating plants come in sizes from very small (duckweed) to over a foot in diameter (water hyacinth). Most have roots that hang in the water from the floating green portions.

variable-leaf_watermilfoil_thumbSubmerged Plants are rooted plants with most of their vegetative mass below the water surface, although some portions may stick above the water. One discerning characteristic of submerged plants is their flaccid or soft stems, which is why they do not usually rise above the water’s surface.

white_water_lily_thumbEmergent Plants are rooted plants often along the shoreline that stand above the surface of the water (cattails). The stems of emergent plants are somewhat stiff or firm.

Many ponds have more than one type of aquatic plant, and care must be taken to identify all the aquatic plants inhabiting the pond. Some pond plants may be beneficial to local or migratory wildlife, and therefore, may want to be encouraged or at least not eliminated. Click on whichever group of aquatic plants that you feel your specimen may belong to and work through the examples until you find it.
