Is your shoreline lacking vegetation? Does it have erosion problems? These problems can have serious impacts on the lake or pond. Lakeland Biologists provides complete shoreline restoration services. A healthy stable shoreline is an important part of the aquatic ecosystem. and can reduce long term management costs.
Lakeland Biologists recommends using native plants around a pond or lake. Other options include rock along the shoreline, often called rip rap, or a combination of rocks and plants. Rip rap works well to stabilize the waters edge and prevent erosion but this can also be done in combination with plants. The plants will reduce phosphorus and other nutrients entering the pond or lake.
