If your looking for a picturesque setting with some eye-appeal, then "shorescaping" is what your pond needs.
Shorescaping is a landscaped shoreline buffer that uses plants adapted to aquatic environments. The same plants used to beautify your pond also helps protect it. One solution to provide multiple benefits!
Shorescapes add excellent aesthetics and increase your property value
Shorescaping reduces shoreline erosion – Plants slow the runoff velocity down and the roots help hold the soil in place
Provides water quality protection – Biogeochemical processes remove pollutants before they get to your pond.
Established shorescapes can slow the spread of nuisance vegetation by: nutrient removal, shading the pond edges, and reducing the area for weeds to take root.
Shorescapes support diverse and healthy ecosystems and provide habitat, shelter, and food sources for wildlife.
As part of our site visits, we keep ay eye out for any erosion “hot-spots” and repair them as necessary. Erosion issues can dramatically increase the sediment load in your pond and potentially cause problems at inlet/outlet structures.
