SHORESOX EROSION CONTROL
Shoresox is what Lake and Wetland uses to restore and control shoreline erosion. It is 100% environment-friendly and made with all organic materials. Without proper shoreline control, the shoreline will erode further and further throughout the years until the damage can be very costly or irreversible. When there is shoreline erosion ecosystem of the lake is affected. When the water slowly fills in on the land, this created property damaged and even residential damage if the residences are close enough, which in Florida, they usually are.
Lake and Wetland Management does planting jobs for preserves, littorals, and wetlands. We grow native plants in our nursery at our main office. Some of the native species that are grown and installed are
- Arrowheads / Duck Potato
- Golden Cannas
- Blue Flag Iris
- Spikerush (Sedges)
- Soft Stem Bullrush]
- Red Stem Thalia
When are lake has an excess amount of exotic or non-native plants, Lake and Wetland Management will remove all of the plants that are overgrowing in the area. When there is a very large amount, large scale clearing may be needed. Once they are all removed, herbicide will be sprayed to prevent them from returning. That is when the native plants from the nursery are installed. These plants usually are installed in the littoral shelves were they can filter the run-off the will go in the lake.
