Creating an aquatic garden or selecting certain natives plants to thrive can significantly improve the water quality and ecology of the lake.
Homeowners can get creative in re-decorating their lakefront or simply let us design something for you. Aquatic gardens need the same attention as your lawn gardens to keep them looking beautiful and healthy.

Native Plants Installation

Unlike exotic plants, native plants are less invasive. There are a large
variety of flowering native plants that are hardy, slow growing and are
ideal for aquatic gardens and installation of them is beneficial for
lakefront clearing.

Vegetation can be selected and managed for a variety of benefits
including aesthetic appeal, wildlife habitat, and as an erosion control
measure. We can work with you to discuss all available options so that
you’re building the lakefront of your dreams.

State and County agencies often required that nuisance vegetation be
replaced with native more beneficial options when removed.

Nuisance Plant Removal

Central Florida has over six thousand natural fresh water lakes. In the
last two to three decades most of the lakes have been profoundly
affected by exotic nuisance vegetation. These species have choked
out the natural aquatic habitat and changed the lakescapes.

The staff at Karina Lakefront is trained in recognizing the particular
nuisance plants and/or algae affecting your lake and the most effective
method of removal control.
