Cala Homes have informed us that they have installed an application of barley straw to the large pond at their site off Pegasus Way — see picture.

Apparently they have experienced unprecedented algae growth during the summer months and although not an ideal time of year to apply the barley straw Cala wanted to get something in place which would combat growth through the winter prior to planting season next year.
