Retention ponds are artificial bodies of water built to serve as storm water collection basins. However, they are often marketed as natural lakes. The differential between intent and usage presents a unique set of problems that require a comprehensive set of solutions.
Lake Defense Force leverages years of experience in navigating between the needs of real estate brokers, waterfront homeowners, HOAs and commercial owners to reach decisions on a course of action for noxious weed eradication.. We help coordinate neighborhood meetings, establish appropriate goals, develop long-term plans and work with the existing teams.
Retention pond management demands a combination of vegetation control, nutrient filtration, floating wetlands and sometimes shoreline redevelopment to effectively control algae, weeds and water quality. These plans start with community meetings and end with crystal clear water, lovely and appropriate shoreline landscaping and a more connected community.
