The Lake Bottom Blanket is a chemical free, sun light barrier that is an affordable solution for the control of the aquatic weeds that have detrimental effects on water quality and the recreational use of Lakes and Ponds. The Lake Bottom Blanket is designed for the lake front property owner to rid his or her waterfront of unsightly aquatic weeds with 100% effectiveness. This style of lake weed control is considered a Benthic Barrier, and it's design has advantages over the other sunlight blockers currently on the market, and it is by far the least costly and easiest to use.
For plants to grow they require sunlight, when you reduce or eliminate sunlight you stop plants from synthesizing food and they die. This is the premise of the Lake Bottom Blanket, it shades only the areas that you decide you want cleared; in less than 4 weeks it kills the plant life under the LBB and doesn’t allow new growth, normally for an entire season.
Select the area where you want to get rid of aquatic weeds. Usually around docks and swimming areas.
Place the Lake Bottom Blanket over the weeds you want to kill.
After 1 month, the blanket will have killed the weeds attempting to grow underneath. Remove the Lake Bottom Blanket and store until next season, or move to another area.
Aquatic weed control is more than just killing the weeds everywhere in your lake, there needs to be a balance for the body of water to be healthy.

They are Non chemical, Low cost and 100% effective.

"We deployed the first set of 10 in June and then moved them in August to a different infestation where we added 20 new ones… We found them to be very durable, easy to deploy and not too bad to remove. We are looking to buy potentially 30-50 more this year."
