Dam Barrier Netting
Dam barrier netting project currently under construction at Royal Melbourne Golf Course to prevent ducks entering the water. Durable, UV resistant netting catches leaves and other debris before it can enter the dam, lake or pond and foul the water. Such debris is not only unsightly, but as it decomposes, it releases various compounds that stimulate algae growth and threaten water quality.
Dam and pond netting also discourages some pond pests and predators – especially herons and other birds.
