We have yet to meet a pond or lake owner whose goal is to have a body of water choked with unwanted vegetation and algae. You want to enjoy your pond regardless of what your goals are. Heavy growth of weeds and algae can make that almost impossible. We can identify your problem weeds and offer treatment recommendations utilizing a variety of proven methods.
So, you have solid data about your fish population and water quality. What's next? The old saying, "If you fail to plan then plan to fail" holds very true for pond management. We'll work with you to identify exactly what goals you have for your pond. Once we determine if they are achievable, we'll outline a detailed plan to help you reach them.
A well-designed pond can provide years of enjoyment. We'll work with you to clearly identify your end goals and then build a solid design and construction plan to help you reach them. We'll start with an evaluation of your soils , site, topography and water source and round out the project plan with advice about bottom contour, structure, fish stocking, aeration, docks, fountains and other pond-related needs.
Access to an accurate pond and lake offers more than just the obvious advantages. Detailed contour maps will certainly help you identify the most likely places for fish to congregate, but there are other benefits as well. Maps can be used to calculate water volume for accurate chemical application or design of the most efficient aeration system. One visit by our mapping crew is all it takes to develop a detailed bottom contour map of your favorite waters.
Wonder why your pond isn't producing the size or numbers of fish you think it should? One of the most important assessments a pond or lake owner should perform is a Water Quality Analysis. It is a generally accepted belief that if you focus on the water, everything will take care of itself. We can perform an analysis that will provide you with valuable information to push your fishery to the next level.
Whether you want lunker bass, plate-sized bluegill or simply a balanced fishery, knowledge is power! To achieve whatever goals you have for your pond or lake, it is important to know exactly what is swimming around under the surface. We can help you determine exactly that with a fish population survey that will identify species of fish, sizes, age structure and overall health.
Ever wonder how many deer are on your property? Any giants living nearby? Wildlife surveys are a great tool to help determine populations, age structure or sex ratios. Armed with that information, you can implement a solid management plan based on solid data versus guesswork. Surveys are also a great way to determine if you have predators and if they have become a problem.

Quality habitat is the key to attracting and holding wildlife on your property. We will complete an assessment of your land and outline a plan to introduce or improve what might be the missing link.
