Aquatic Weed & Algae Control Services

Professional Management Service

Creating a healthy pond is more than just a one-time fish stocking or applying the occasional herbicide or algaecide. Your pond/lake is a complex ecosystem. Focusing on one issue without considering the pond as a whole can lead to a frustrating cycle of failure. For example, eliminating a nuisance plant/algae or stocking more largemouth bass to get bigger fish without considering their role in the ecosystem can have unintended consequences. If you eradicate one weed, a population shift to a different nuisance vegetation is likely because the phosphorus is still available in the pond. Similarly, if you continue to stock more and more largemouth bass without addressing their forage base, you're more likely to see stunted fish than trophy sized bass.

A truly healthy pond or lake is achieved by applying different management strategies that complement one another. Our team will identify the causes of your pond's issues, determine which strategies will best address them and implement them in your pond/lake. Adopting complementary management strategies increases satisfaction with the results and the long-term health of your pond/lake.
