Continued maintenance is recommended for optimal long-term results
and to maintain your property’s value. It allows nuisance vegetation
suppression all year round so that your lakefront stays looking
beautiful after the initial cleaning. Establishing an integrated
maintenance program for your lakefront is a customized process
based on the goals of our clients. This may involve mechanical and
manual plant removal, pruning of existing vegetation, herbicide
applications, and considering the introduction of biological controls,
such as triploid grass carps if the nuisance vegetation is exceptionally
difficult to eradicate. During the maintenance program, we can adapt
the approach due to changes in your lake’s ecology. Different times of
year result in differing lake conditions, and our staff is trained to
address these changes with emphasis on detail and aesthetics.

Keeping your lakes and ponds clean is
an extremely important service when it
comes to maintaining your property
value

Weather and lake conditions are unpredictable and can vary from
month to month. By creating a maintenance plan, your lakefront will
receive continuous service on a regular basis to stay looking great
all year.

Aquatic plant care is included in most maintenance plans, your
desirable and beneficial plants are pruned monthly to promote healthy
growth and make sure they always look their best.

Benefits of Proper Lake Maintenance

Erosion Control

It is important to take note of erosion, for the sake of houses or buildings that are situated close to the shore. Without proper monitoring and maintenance of the lake, large chunks of land could be replaced by water, endangering the property that is close by.

Controlling Weed and Algae

In any body of water, there is bound to be the presence of both algae and weeds. Without proper care, this can lead to algae blooms. This occurrence can affect many of the aquatic plants that live below the surface, and adversely impact on the aquatic animals in the ecosystem.

Quality of Water

If you want good water quality, then lake maintenance is a must. A lake or pond is a complicated ecosystem that can impact many things. A small change in any part can lead to ramifications that can be felt throughout the entire area. By ensuring a healthy level of water quality, both aquatic plant and animal life can prosper.

What Lake Maintenance Involves

Lake Oxygenation

When it comes to the water quality in a lake, oxygen plays a huge role.
It is essential for animals and plant life to have a sufficient oxygen
supply. By ensuring the lake is properly aerated, this will help keep the
ecosystem in prime shape.

Having enough plant life around the area and on the lake itself would help.
Be sure to get rid of algae and weeds which will counteract this process.
There are also specialized equipment that can provide both surface and
submerged aeration.

Natural is Best

While we want to take care of the plant life around the area, it is best
to stick to natural solutions when doing so. Gardening products used
should be free from chemicals. Eco-friendly products will help make
sure that the lake and the plants do not take in harmful pollutants that
can affect the quality of water and the ecosystem of the lake.

Water Testing

Every once in a while, you should do a test of the water quality.
This will tell you more about the levels of Nitrates, Nitrites,
and Phosphates in the lake. In a properly maintained body of water,
neither of these compounds should be at a high level.

If you spot an anomaly, it is best to find out the cause
and seek a solution.

Keeping a lake well-maintained is not easy and keeping it all in balance with Nature is complex. Every lake has different requirements and needs various care and maintenance strategies. Ultimately, the benefits do outweigh the efforts and investment. By ensuring the quality of your lake remains high, you can truly enjoy your lake for years to come.
