Plant Management & Weed Removal
It doesn't take long for aquatic plants to take over if left untended for too long. Blanket weed will quickly choke a pond, depriving it of oxygen and altering pH levels dangerously.
Duck weed will multiply alarmingly until the whole surface is covered, restricting light to other plants. Water lilies, rushes, yellow flag irises and other marginal plants can quickly outgrow their baskets becoming an unmanageable and often incredibly heavy tangle.
From ponds to lakes, Crystal Clear Aquatics can clear invasive species, cut back and re-pot desirable plants and administer environmentally friendly treatments to help control blanket weed, duck weed and green water.
