Erosion Control & Shoreline Restoration

Erosion is essentially the removal of coastal land that has been supplanted by water. Water wears down earth and sediment, and as such, rising water levels are one of the primary causes of shoreline erosion. Often, elevated water levels are a side effect of the changing seasons. In addition, other contributing factors can include:

  • Storms or high-speed winds that create large waves
  • Improperly-drained runoff from storms, agriculture or irrigation
  • Fish species that tunnel through the shoreline

Lake & Pond Sediment Removal

Over a period of time leaves, weeds, algae and other organic matter accumulate in your pond or lake, taking the form of “MUCK”. As the amount of this material increases over the years the waterway starts to experience many problems. MUCK harbors nutrients that can cause excessive weed and algae problems, and deteriorates the water quality and ecosystem of your lake or pond. Now Lake and Wetland Management offers a unique, low-impact method of removing these unwanted sediments and restoring new life to your lake or pond.

Many such preserves also feature transitional vegetated buffers between suburbia and the protected natural areas, and Lake & Wetland Management is an industry leader in creating and maintaining these preserves and the buffers protecting them. Our native nursery grows and sources a wide assortment of handsome, beneficial terrestrial and aquatic Florida plants to populate these buffers, protect natural areas, and attractively demarcate where wildlife habitat begins.
