Benefits of Aquatic Plants

lake managementAquatic plants serve a far more important purpose than just being aesthetically pleasing planted along your lakes and ponds. Instead, aquatic plants can enhance the overall health of your waterways and provide many positive effects to the wildlife found in your lakes. Below we list the many benefits that property owners experience when they have aquatic plants in their ponds.

  • Absorb excessive nutrients
  • Stabilize lake and pond banks
  • Provide a healthy habitat for fish and other wildlife
  • Provide a food source for fish and wildlife

There are many different aquatic plants to add to your lakes, such as Pickerelweed, Arrowhead, Canna, and Blue Flag Iris, and many more. Our company is proud to offer our clients a new product called floating islands, which are floating mats that range in sizes with cutouts for installing various aquatic plants. The floating islands are anchored in position, and the plants derive all their nutrients from the lake or pond water. They provide aesthetic appeal as well as nutrient absorption.
