Re: ponds/plants/geese

I run them off! (literally - it involves running towards them whenever I see them, and throwing small rocks in their vicinity. I don't aim at them.) Consistency is the key, so if you work outside the home, it probably won't be successful. Interestingly, in our neighborhood the covenants favor the geese - we can't plant shrubs or tall grass around the pond. Geese favor locations where their sentinel can see in all directions...shrubbery or other vegetation obstructing the view are a deterrent to "setting up housekeeping".

We work very hard to convince the geese that the big pond is not a
nesting habitat!
