Did you know that Cattails are the breeding zone for a type of mosquito known to carry diseases such as West Nile?
We isolate invasive cattails and eliminate common reed. We destroy weeds on the banks and in the rip-rap. And we control all plants above and below the water.
“All aquatic plants can grow like weeds”
This is the general mindset of an aquatic landscape professional. Therefore Living Waters knows a watch list of hypo-allergenic helper plants that our management team protects. All other plants are on our bad list.
AQUATIC VEGETATION MANAGEMENT
We use a combination of conventional low-impact herbicides*, mechanical equipment, and over-seeding to get the job done right the first time. Your retention pond and the pipes connected to it are regulated Storm-water BMPs. We remove overgrowth and woody vegetation that is non-compliant with the BMPs. We control poison ivy, typha, bulrush, juncus rush, cutgrass, johnson grass, reed canary grass, creeping water primrose, and even willow. Living Waters promotes the growth of native primrose, purslane, asters & frogfruit to beautify the grossest looking areas of your pond. With the control of Cattails and weeds, our aquatic vegetation management will give you a view of the butterflies and songbirds that rely upon ponds and lowland flowers.
