Pond & Lake Q & A
Q: I notice you have a black pond dye. Is there any reason why I should use black pond dye versus blue pond dye? – Nick of New York
A: We’ve received some calls lately about the difference between our Nature’s Blue™ Pond Dye & Black DyeMond™ Pond Dyes. What’s the best color for the pond? Is one better than the other? When would I use one of them and not the other? It really comes down to color preference as well as the environment surrounding your pond.
Nature’s Blue™ Pond Dye is the most widely used of the pond dyes. It looks very good in almost any situation. Our blue dye has a very deep, natural blue shade as opposed to some of the yellowish-blue colors you find with some other brands. Nature’s Blue™ Pond Dye works great in ponds that have a manicured and open landscape where the open sky can help reflect the color.
Black DyeMond™ Pond Dye is growing popularity extremely fast in the pond market. What we’ve found is that Black DyeMond™ pond dye fits very well in natural ponds in wooded areas. It gives the pond a pure, reflective quality that rivals some of Mother Nature’s best work.
Either way, whichever color you choose, blue or black, pond dye is an important aspect of keep your pond looking beautiful all year.
