Florida is famous for its beautiful wetlands, but these natural treasures are threatened by hundreds of species of exotic plants that have been introduced from around the world. Lake & Wetland Management has the experience, expertise, and specialized tools to control invasive weeds and manage wetlands for aesthetic beauty, wildlife habitat enhancement, and governmental mitigation and compliance.
Invasive weeds such as Hydrilla, cattails, Water Hyacinth, and Torpedo Grass can quickly dominate and degrade wetlands. Lake & Wetland Management offers quick, professional wetland cleanup services to remove and dispose of troublesome weeds, then develops customized comprehensive management plans to control invasive weeds and manage the wetlands to meet the individual goals and needs of the customer and the project site.
In addition to removing invasive exotic plants, Lake & Wetland Management also further enhances wetlands by installing locally-grown and locally-sourced native Florida plants through its five-acre south Florida native nursery. Lake & Wetland Management carries a full range of native wetland plants for your wetland preserve project, from stately Bald-Cypress and Pond-Apple, to a wide array of eye-catching flowering littoral plants such as Golden Canna, Pickerelweed, Southern Blue Flag Iris, Fragrant Water Lily, and Florida Swamp-Lily.
