Who Benefits From Emergent Remediation

How We Control Emergent Overgrowth

The Pond Guy® is here to take the lead in ensuring your pond is cleaned and maintained properly. To maximize the effectiveness of remediation, we spray emergent growth that is at least 12”-18” above the water’s surface. A systemic herbicide will kill the emergent weeds down to the root to prevent the plant from re-growing. Our new argo sprayer allows us to reach even the most overgrown area.

How We Remove Dead Debris

We use lightweight, specialized equipment to avoid damaging existing landscape taking special care to remove these emergent weeds and give you back your pond. Offsite removal of debris may also be available. Most cattail and phragmites removal services are completed with one day.
