Aquatic weeds can be a nuisance in any body of water, whether it’s a pond, lake, or even in rivers. Lake weeds diminish your esthetics, make it difficult to swim or boat, and even harbor harmful bacteria. If unchecked, over time these overgrown aquatic weeds will trap sediment and slowly fill in the waterbody. This would lead to massive dredging projects to get the lake back to being usable.
Traditionally, the way to control aquatic weeds has been to use herbicides. However, herbicides can be harmful to the environment, and they can also be expensive. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in non-chemical aquatic weed control methods. These methods are more environmentally friendly and can be just as effective as herbicides.
One of the most effective non-chemical aquatic weed control methods is the use of a Lake Bottom Blanket®. A Lake Bottom Blanket® prevents sunlight from reaching the weeds, which prevents them from growing. For a homeowner, you can instantly fix your waterfront area and enjoy all it has to offer.
