The Pond Guy Journey: A History of Lake and Pond Management Excellence
Since our founding in 1998, The Pond Guy has operated with a focus on providing clients with the best value and quality in aquatic management through superior service offerings, applied lake and pond management research, and expertise. And we are proud to say that we were one of the first lake and pond management companies to serve Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk Counties, Westchester, and New York City’s five Boroughs. At The Pond Guy, we strive for excellence. In February 2020, we transitioned ownership to SOLitude Lake Management—a decision that allowed us to broaden our technical expertise, expand our service offerings, and increase our training and development efforts. To better define who we are, what we stand for, and the journey we share with our clients, we adopted a new name for our company, one that reflects the principles that define us in the markets we serve. We are proud to introduce you to SOLitude Lake Management.
As always, we are committed to delivering superior solutions for your lake and pond management needs. We are excited to continue our journey into next year and beyond as SOLitude!

The staff of SOLitude Lake Management identified the weed and treated the pond promptly with much success.We’ve been working with SOLitude Lake Management since 2009 when an aggressive aquatic weed was becoming a problem and taking over our pond. The staff of SOLitude Lake Management identified the weed and treated the pond promptly with much success. Since that time, our ponds have been monitored monthly by their competent staff and precautions have been taken so that the pond weeds do not get out of control. We are pleased with the quality of service and their effort to work with us towards an organic approach to keeping our ponds healthy
SOLitude has taken a huge burden off of my shoulders and now I don’t even have to worry about the appearance of our pond
We used to struggle with many different issues on holes 15,16,17 at our Country Club. It was not uncommon for us to see algae blooms appear out of nowhere along one of the most important focal points of the course. Since SOLitude Lake Management has been taking care of the pond for us, we have had very little issues with the aesthetic qualities of our pond. SOLitude has taken a huge burden off of my shoulders and now I don’t even have to worry about the appearance of our pond
SOLitude came in and guided us through the entire process.
We were presented with the challenge of dealing with our stormwater basin, which is regulated by EPA standards that we were not familiar with. SOLitude came in and guided us through the entire process. Our basin went from an eyesore to a spectacular main selling point for our community. We are in good hands with SOLitude and cannot thank them enough!

Working with the team from SOLitude Lake Management took away the pressure of dealing with an issue that I had never specialized in
Working with the team from SOLitude Lake Management took away the pressure of dealing with an issue that I had never specialized in. The knowledge of everyone involved helped keep the process moving, from engineering to local code compliance. They knew the course that needed to be taken and it was implemented in a timely manner, causing the project to come to completion well within our expectations
Immediate Communication and Actionable Timelines
SOLitude Lake Management has consistently performed to a high standard within the three communities they currently service for my clients. Whether it is routine maintenance or a major issue, I can always be assured that when I call or email we will have almost immediate communication and actionable timelines. I am particularly impressed with Brent Weber, the Environmental Scientist that is routinely assigned to my properties. He consistently keeps me informed and up-to-date on the status of new issues and general or routine upkeep. In a busy industry such as this one, having someone that stays in touch is critical and appreciated. Hat’s off to Brent and to SOLitude for a job well done!
Fantastic Lighting Job“Your professionalism and expediency in getting a job done makes my life as a Property Association Manager so much easier. Thanks for the fantastic lighting job on the BMP fountain. I have had nothing but great comments from residents.”
Reliable and Quick to Respond“SOLitude Lake Management has been managing our lake/stormwater pond, and fountains since 2005. Kevin Tucker and his team have always been reliable and quick to respond to any issues. They are all very knowledgeable, able to explain what is happening with any situation, and find solutions to problem as they arise. Overall, I have been very pleased with their work and would highly recommend them to anyone with lake, pond, and other BMP management needs.”
Thank You from Camp Holiday TrailsThank you for coordinating the restoration effort for our pond and donating labor for the aerator installation and watermeal treatment. This will ensure that hundreds of kids with special medical needs, and those who have the honor, joy and inspiration of working with them, will benefit from the Camp Holiday Trails experience this year!
Many thanks to SOLitude for always doing such a great job in Crofton Meadows!
I had two phone calls today from homeowners telling me how beautiful the pond is and that they love the festive lights. Many thanks to SOLitude for always doing such a great job in Crofton Meadows!
We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years
Our Club was more interested in a mechanical removal approach to our weed problem versus a broad spectrum chemical treatment. Jeff Castellani and his team developed a plan that was well suited for our environmentally sensitive location. The mechanical hydro raking service that SOLitude provided was the perfect solution and worked very well in our shallow irrigation pond… We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years.
The service we received was top notch
When one of our stormwater BMPs was overtaken by phragmites, we called SOLitude for treatment. From the bidding process to the follow-up, the service we received was top notch. A year later, the Phragmites has still not returned. Considering how invasive this species is, this is quite an accomplishment!
