Weed & Algae Control

Controlling aquatic growth requires a balance and use of chemical control, biological control, and physical control:

Herbicides & Algaecides

In most scenarios, the weeds and algae have such a grip on a pond that we need to first get ahead of it using chemicals, followed by preventative maintenance to keep from having to routinely spray your pond. 

Biological Control 

This consists of altering water parameters, the use of beneficial bacteria, implementing herbivorous organisms such as grass carp, and implementing the use of wanted and strategically used plants such as floating islands. 

Physical Control

Is the use of altering your pond physically, such as adding in a silt pond or dredging your pond to remove nutrients and gain back depth, or the use of weed harvesters to remove the bulk of the plant life.
