Last weekend, we decided to take a break from priming, painting and installing carpet tiles, and do somethin' fun. We started raking algae off of the big pond surface.
Here is the Chief Pond Raker Dude with his fine Redneck Pond Rake. (A regular leaf rake with a block of pink Styrofoam Velcro-ed to the fan part, and a floating rope duct taped to the handle. Mucho cheaper than a real pond rake.)
This is the pile we pulled off before our shoulders said, "No More". That stuff is surprisingly heavy.
I guess this is why it's called string algae.
We definitely gotta git us some hip waders at The Wal-Mart.
