Algae Control / Pond Colorant

We use copper sulfate on your water surface to reduce the algae growth.  Black dye colorant is added to your lake or pond to shade the water and prevent further algae blooms.  This process is usually done in eight scheduled visits or every three weeks from April through September.  These visits will help keep the algae under control.

Spring Tips

There are many activities to do in the Spring. It’s a great time for planting trees, shrubs, perennials and flowers. It’s also a great time to divide and transplant your ornamental grasses and perennials. Cleaning up debris, fertilizing plants and applying pre-emergent weed control are also important tasks. Don’t forget to mulch and edge your beds and start up your irrigation systems if needed.
