Littoral Shelf Maintenance
Lake & Wetland Management has the experience, expertise, and specialized tools to control invasive weeds and manage littoral shelf plantings and wetlands for aesthetic beauty 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 works with property managers and HOAs to develop customized, comprehensive management plans to control invasive weeds and manage the wetlands to meet the needs of the individual project.
In addition to removing invasive exotic plants, Lake & Wetland Management further enhances littoral shelves by installing locally-grown and locally-sourced plants through its five-acre south Florida native nursery. We carry a full range of native wetland plants to keep your littoral shelves today and looking their best. Installation is fast and professional, and when accompanied by a maintenance plan, all plants carry Lake & Wetland Management’s warranty guarantee. Take the worry, hassle and guesswork out of managing your littoral plantings and leave it to Lake & Wetland Management, your wetland management professionals.

Shoreline Erosion Control
Shoreline Erosion is a major problem in Florida. Wind, waves, and exotic fish gnaw away at shorelines waterside while heavy rainfall, runoff, and burrowing iguanas breakdown banks from above. Eroded shorelines aren’t just unsightly, they can cause serious threats to homeowners’ investments and infrastructure, muddy lake water and contribute to serious algal blooms, and become a dangerous source of resident injuries and liability. Lake & Wetland Management is the premier Florida installer of SOX Erosion Solutions, a cutting-edge technology that halts erosion the day it’s installed, rebuilds and reclaims lost shorelines, deepens shallow channels, and provides a clean, grassy, finished edge down to the water’s edge.

Midge & Mosquito Larvae Control
In lieu of chemical pesticides that can potentially harm humans, pets and wildlife, Lake & Wetland Management recommends VectoBac, a naturally-occurring, biodegradable bacteria product, registered for use by the EPA and recommended by the World Health Organization for control of mosquito larvae. We also stock native mosquitofish to deliver effective natural midge and mosquito larvae control and install boxes that attract insectivorous bats to combat flying adults. These environmentally-friendly services can help combat and reduce the numbers of midges, mosquitoes, Yellow Flies, horseflies, Stable Flies, and biting midges (“no-see-ums”) and can help reduce the potential of Zika Virus, canine heartworm, and various strains of encephalitis, diseases and parasites that threaten humans, dogs, birds and horses.

Whatever your goals, Lake & Wetland Management can develop a custom stocking strategy specifically tailored to your individual needs and those of your waterway.
