Aquatic Weed Cutters and Rakes
Aquatic weeds and algae grow in shallow waters along the edge of ponds and lakes, in shallow swimming areas and around boat docks. In lakes they often grow between your boat docks and open waters causing problems for boaters and their families. There are 2 main tools that you can use to clean up around ponds and boat docks every day. The serrated weed cutter and the weed razor, below in the page. On ponds that are contained you can get a permit form the ministry of environment to use a product called Reward, a aquatic weed herbicide. Each one has its own job, so match it to the weeds you have and your weeds will become simple to control.
1) Aquatic Weed Cutter

No need for dangerous and expensive chemicals; just cut the weeds along the bottom of the pond. Slide the weed cutter out on the surface of the pond with the 17’ handle. Let it settle to the bottom and pull back, bringing the weeds or chara back to the shore. On shore the weeds or chara (algae) will dry in a few minutes making it very light to take away.
