- Lake management consultations: We recommend all new clients begin with an in-person consultation from one of our lake management experts. During this consultation, our technician will take a variety of measurements to assess the overall health of your lake or pond and develop a long-term management strategy. You’ll also have the chance to discuss any specific concerns or goals you have at this point.
- Vegetation management: Proper vegetation management is one of the keys to maintaining a healthy lake. For our clients, this means eliminating invasive species and promoting the growth of plants which are good for your lake’s ecosystem. We can also use a variety of interventions — including mechanical, chemical, biological and physical management — to clear areas of excessive vegetation for boating and swimming.
- Water quality monitoring: Every lake and pond is different, and ongoing monitoring of a variety of water quality factors establishes a baseline which lets us know when corrective action is necessary. Our team can provide regular monitoring of pH, alkalinity, temperature/dissolved oxygen, secchi depth and other essential health indicators in your lake or pond.
- Fish stocking and management: A variety of sport fish species are available for stocking larger lakes, including bluegill, walleye and largemouth bass. We offer wholesale prices for large orders, and we can also provide long-term management services to ensure your fish population remains healthy and sustainable.
