There’s nothing like the beauty and serenity of a home on a lake. But that sense of joy can quickly sour when summer comes along and heats the water enough to spur the growth of icky, smelly, creepy underwater weeds like milfoil and lily pads. Pretty soon kids refuse to swim at your beach, your boat propellers get tangled and — first world problems alert — your seaplane hangar is a mess.
We can help. Our shoreline clean-up and restoration unit, Milfoil King, has helped hundreds of lakefront homeowners over the past decade to eliminate invasive underwater invasive species and prevent future growth.
We will either send a project estimator to your property to work up a custom bid, or we can speed up the process by studying your waterfront on a satellite map.
We do not use herbicides or dredging machines, in keeping with our focus on ecological neutrality.
We assign our commercially certified divers to pull the weeds at their roots by hand. We then pack the vegetation into our trucks for transfer to specialized county facilities; rake your sand to leave it looking nice; and leave a note explaining the work we did and any proposed next steps.
For a more permanent solution, Milfoil King will cover the underwater area with a biodegradable, long-lasting, jute “bottom barrier” that prevents the sun from rejuvenating any stems.
