The Lake Bottom Blanket may be installed in water with weeds either in the dormant stage or any time in the growing season, but it's easier and better when installed before the weeds areabove the water's surface. The Blankets are 10 feet 9 inches wide by whatever length the customer requires - normally 40 feet. The Blankets are shipped folded without the rebar. The role of the supplied float is (A) to keep away power boats that might disturb the Blanket and (B) to locate the outboard handle for LBB take up or moving.
Note 1: In deep wateraway-from-shore installation is best accomplished using two boats with two people on at least one of the boats.
Note 2: The intention is thatthe Blanket be deployed perpendicular to the shore - not parallel, as wave action will dislodge it and anyone walking into the water may be tripped by it.
After one month’s time The Lake Bottom Blanket can be removed or moved to a new weed stricken area. For example you can install The Lake Bottom Blanket the end of May and pull it out the end of June, and have little to no weeds in that area for the rest of the summer… The Lake Bottom Blanket is shipped economically in a box without the weights installed. using 3/8″ rebar as weights for The Lake Bottom Blanket. 3/8″ rebar is available at your local building supply store and most suppliers will cut it to length for you. 3/8″ rubber end caps are supplied to cover the rebar ends to prevent damage or injury from possible sharp edges of the rebar.

Rebar Recommendations for each blanket size:
3/8" rebar can be purchased at any masonry or building supply store all over the country, with an average cost of $30.00 for a LBB40. Lowes Home Improvement stores also carry pre-cut lengths of 3/8" rebar but they are a little more expensive, but convenient.

If your installation calls for more weighting, our weight tubes can accommodate 1/2" rebar. (but it does double the weight of the blanket)
