Stage 1

Organic matter begins to collect; however, nutrient levels are still low and there is minimal weed and algae growth.

Lake & Pond Life Cycles

Lake & Pond Muck:

Organisms such as grass clippings, leaves, and other sediments accumulate at the lake bottom creating a layer of nutrient rich muck. Rain & storm water runoff, excessive chemical use, and high fish loads are also leading causes for most ponds and lakes to accumulate high bottom sediment and nutrient suspension that can reduce water clarity & produce obnoxious odors.

Sediment & Muck Removal

​Restore the natural beauty of your lakefront or pond!
 Increase areas for recreational use - restore access around docks and beaches - reduce smells from algae - dramatically reduce Muck and floating sediment. ​​

The key to sustaining any healthy pond or shoreline is prevention. Fall aquatic and shoreline weed removal is essential to reduce the amount of muck creating nutrients released into your pond or lake. Once the snow and ice of the winter months consume the water surface, most weeds die off releasing nutrients that fuel future weed growth, obnoxious odors, & assist in the creation of undesirable muck loads. Upon Springs arrival, road salt and other nutrient rich runoff filters into the watershed also encouraging weed, muck, & odor invasion. Our individually catered Muck Reduction and seasonal Weed Removal plans ensure your enjoyment of your pond or lakefront property! Please contact us at phragmitescontrol@gmail.com or (248)379-5351 for more information or to schedule an on-site evaluation!
