we have a water feature in front yard 6'x8' x 2' deep very High algea growth.

Asked October 10, 2018, 3:56 PM EDT

What can I use to inhibit the high algae issue and not harm the birds and small animals that access the water?

Thank you for your question. Without a photo of the algae or the water feature, I don't know exactly what type of algae you have, nor whether the structure is capable of handling some of the recommendations for algae control. But here is a comprehensive Extension article about algae control in ponds, which is adaptable to your yard, and will help protect the other animals using it: https://extension.psu.edu/filamentous-algae

Hope it is helpful. Good luck!
