Aquatic Weed Identification

Aquatic weeds can have a major impact on your pond, as swimming, fishing, and boating can all be adversely affected.  As Aquatic Weed Specialists, Pond Perfections offer many solutions to help control the overgrowth, decrease the sludge in the bottom of the pond or lake and improve water quality. 

The aquatic weeds identified below are some of the common weeds in Canada.

Pond Maintenance

Pond maintenance can handled in many ways.  Shown here is a man with great balance and a trusty raft cleaning weeds from the pond. Spraying weeds in your pond is another way of controlling the weed population. Some of our aquatic products are weed cutters and nets, which greatly reduce the labour and time spent cleaning weeds and algae.

The picture on the right is Chara.  An algae that grows in shallower waters and is plant-like but has no roots. Chara feeds off the bottom sludge and uses the sun to aid its growth. Once it takes over the pond’s edge it becomes a challenge to use the pond. With proper aquatic weed information you can save money getting the right tool or product.

Give Pond Perfections a call to arrange a consultation to discuss solutions such as Sludge Pellets, ORB-3 Bacteria Packets, True Blue Water Dye, Aeration, Weed Razors and Cutters or the Aquatic Weed Roller/Beachroller.
