How We Control Emergent Overgrowth

Emergent growth can strangle out a pond or lake, affect the aesthetic value, and sometimes even become a fire hazard if left unattended. For long-term results, unwanted emergent weeds must be treated with a systemic herbicide before removal. We offer both emergent treatment and removal services.
