The plants and algae in your ponds, lakes, or other water bodies are a critical part of keeping its water system balanced – helping improve overall water quality, provide oxygen, enhance fish and wildlife habitats, and create shorelines and littoral areas that serve as filters for runoff.
Assess, Manage and Monitor Ponds, Lakes and Waterways
At Clarke, we realize, first and foremost, a healthy body of water is a source of life, a thing of beauty, and a functional necessity in the environment. Our goal for aquatic plant management is to support a stable, diverse plant community by managing invasive species and weeds as well as to support the public’s enjoyment of the water. Clarke’s team of experts bring decades of experience and management practices rooted in science-based analysis and diagnosis, precision product application methods and ongoing monitoring supported by the best available technologies.
When invasive plants make their way into your water body or if native aquatic plants density becomes excessive, the impact can be catastrophic to the lake or pond’s ecosystem, native plant community, fish populations, recreational use, and property values. And the breadth of ever-changing factors acting on water bodies makes maintaining the plants and algae within your lakes and ponds extremely challenging. Factors impacting the health of plants in lakes, ponds, and other water bodies include:
Without having a proper ongoing management plan in place that considers a lake's unique features, it is all too easy for these factors to go unnoticed, resulting in potentially disastrous and expensive outcomes. Clarke's team of experts bring decades of experience to each water body, working to meet the established goals and mitigate outside harmful effects on the entire water system.
