Successful Lake and Pond Care – Shoreline Management is the key
With the the changing of the seasons, frustrated lakeshore owners that were overwhelmed by aquatic vegetation throughout the summer are oftentimes thrilled to see the weeds slip below the surface and die, hoping next year is a much better year.
In reality, the very act of ignoring the weeds will ensure the opposite for next year. Here’s why: If you do not remove the vegetation that is out there today, it will die off, sink to the bottom and decay over the winter. This decay will create another layer of muck to squish between your toes next year. That in itself can be disheartening but even more importantly, the muck becomes a high-nutrient compost pile which will fuel next years weed and algae growth. This can ruin a summer of recreational activities, cause unsightly slimy algae and dispense disgusting smells.
There are many activities that are taking place throughout your watershed right now that have a positive impact on the future nutrient loading of your lake. That is important. However, you can provide immediate impact on your own shoreline TODAY by removing the internal nutrients that already exist and are ready for harvest by applying some labor.
Fall removal of the vegetation sounds like a daunting task but with a few simple tools it’s much easier than you might think. Offering the widest range of lake weed rake tools to maintain your waterfront and make the task simple and easy. Something as inexpensive as a WeedShear Cutter ($134.99) www.WeedShears.com and Long Reach Lake Weed Rake www.ForYourShore.com can get the job done quite well and you can even stay dry in the process. If you are not the do-it-yourself type, specialized contractors are available to do the fall clean up for you. Regardless of the method that you use, remember that the clean up and removal of the floating vegetation and fragments is very critical to reduce spreading of invasive weeds. We recommend that you do it on a day when there is a stiff breeze blowing inward to minimize the risk of wayward fragments.
Oh yeah, did we mention that the WeedShear is 100% satisfaction guaranteed? (How can we do that? We have based that on the THOUSANDS that are in use today with a fraction of a percentage of returns. Thats how!)
So, if you would like to impact your lakeshore next year, NOW is absolutely THE most important time of the year to put in the extra effort.
