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.

Aquatic Weed Control & Algae Treatment

lake managementAt The Lake Doctors, we strive to help property owners care for their waterways through our aquatic weed control and algae treatments. Our lake management services are designed to solve your existing problems while creating a healthy atmosphere for future growth by using top-quality materials, specialized equipment, and innovative techniques.

  • When your lakes and ponds become overwhelmed with aquatic weeds, fishing and watersports can become dangerous and difficult.
  • Aquatic weeds can consume a large portion of your oxygen levels in the water, causing harm to the overall ecosystem.
  • Overgrown algae can disrupt the natural flow of water and can alter boat traffic.
  • Too many algae and aquatic weeds can harm fish and wildlife, resulting in larger issues.

We strive to educate our clients on the importance of regular water maintenance. Our annual water management program offers property owners peace of mind by providing monthly inspections and treatments by our licensed aquatic biologists.

Dangerous Animals Found in Florida Lakes

lake managementThe Lake Doctors is proud to be your trusted source for all your lake management needs. Our custom aquatic solutions and regular maintenance plans are designed to help enhance the overall health and aesthetic of your lakes and ponds. While we serve clients throughout Florida, Ohio, and South Carolina, we want to educate our clients on animals that commonly inhabit freshwater lakes found in Florida.

When it comes to nature, animals are always going to come with the territory. While many animals are vital to the survival of the ecosystem, it is also important to be aware of certain species that can be harmful to humans. Below we feature dangerous animals that are common in our line of work. 

  • Alligators

Although most alligators are docile creatures and stray away from boats and humans, it is important to be aware of their existence to increase your safety while in and around freshwater.

  • Cottonmouths/Water Moccasins

Similarly to alligators, cottonmouth snakes tend to avoid human contact, unless otherwise startled or bothered. Water moccasins are venomous and harmful to humans, so it is important to be cautious of their presence.

As a company, we strive to educate and inform our clients to ensure safety. If you are interested in learning more about our water management services, contact us today at 1 (800) 666-5253.
