Shoreline management should never be overlooked. It is one of the most important aspects of a healthy lake or pond. Proper buffer management and shoreline
stabilization maintenance are not only aesthetic enhancers, they help prepare your waterbody for the harsh effects of erosion and protect excess nutrients from entering the water column.
A crucial aspect to a healthy waterbody is a proper vegetative buffer. Buffers can take time to establish but they are well worth the effort. The mix of aquatic grasses, sedges, rushes and other beneficial flowering species serve as excellent filters for excess nutrients and improve the overall aesthetics of your lake or pond. When establishing your buffer, it's important to perform annual management to ensure your vegetation is properly cut or trimmed. An established, healthy buffer will also help stabilize the shoreline and can hinder the effects of erosion.
Shoreline erosion can lead to vegetation loss, property damage, hazardous banks, loss of aesthetics and nutrient loading. All of these effects can shorten the lifespan of your waterbody. With the latest erosion control technologies, you can establish a stable shoreline that protects your lake or pond from erosion. There are several environmentally friendly solutions available depending on your waterbody type, management goal and budget.
There are several ways you can incorporate shoreline maintenance strategies into your lake or pond management plan. Restoring your shoreline can seem difficult at first, but with the help of an expert, you can create a custom management plan that caters to your waterbody's needs and restores your eroding shoreline.
