Pond and Garden Protector 7 ft x 9 ft
Saved my fish from the heron!
For the first time, we have an very large heron that flew off with one of the goldfish and now continues to stalk the area. We had to take drastic measures quickly and this net was the answer. It is easy to put together and we zip tied the extra netting around the frame so that the net does not extend into the landscape as the flowers are trying to grow.
The heron still comes around but the fish no longer seem to be afraid and we still have our entire koi/goldfish count. Reviews of scarecrows, decoys and pinwheels seem to have meet with marginal success because herons are smart and hungry.
Do I love the look? No, I much prefer my pond without any netting and am always glad to remove the leaf net when spring comes. But it is more pleasing than the leaf net and frankly, we don't have much of a choice unless we want to offer a sushi bar. The domed construction means there is no surface walk area for the heron.

Exactly what we needed
This tent is great... sturdy and has a high enough pitch to keep leaves from accumulating. The best price for one of these, too. Comes with stakes to hold in place. My husband, who installed it alone (and is VERY handy) said it would have gotten done A LOT faster with two people.

This a fantastic product. Our fish are finally safe from the heron. They are no longer a part of the birds fall buffet circuit. This has been a battle for 10 years. We had tried every other product and idea out there and every spring had to restock.

Just What I needed
Perfect fit, and goes over my plants still in the pond. I really like the finish of the net, leaves shed easily.
