Helped Restore Community Pond
These guys are great. Every time I stop them to ask what they are doing they are very polite and knowledgeable. Before we had them in our community our ponds were loaded with scum. Keep up the good work!
We Are In Good Hands with SOLitude
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!

Reliable and Quick to RespondSOLitude Lake Management has been managing our lake/stormwater pond, and fountains since 2005. Their team has 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 problems 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.

SOLitude Gets Homeowners Calling with Compliments
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 on our community pond!
SOLitude Get’s the Job Done
We are amazed at the efficiency that Matt, Josh, and Rob demonstrated in operating the harvester. They worked long hours to get the job done and did exactly what I asked them to do. It was my pleasure to work with folks like this and I could tell they had care in what they did. We are very satisfied with the work they did.
Turned Pond Into a Thing of Beauty
SOLitude has been servicing our large residential pond for some years now. They do a wonderful job in all respects! They took a water plant and algae-clogged mess and turned it into a thing of beauty! Work quality is superb, customer service is first-rate. We are extremely well pleased.
Our Fishery Is In It’s Best Condition Ever
Thank you to SOLitude for all your help at our Fishing Club. Our hydrilla problem is practically non-existent now. The fish survey you completed for us, the recommendations on slot sizes, and the stocking and feeding program you developed are producing outstanding results. Our club’s fishery is in the best condition it has ever been! Your presentation to our stockholders at our annual meeting was extremely well received. We are getting ready to enhance our fish attractors as suggested. We appreciate that a management program was developed that fits within our budget and that you are available to talk with us when we have questions. We look forward to continuing our association with SOLitude.
A Huge Improvement with SOLitude
I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the results of the algae treatment. We noticed a huge improvement very quickly, and at this point, the pond looks really, really great. Also, the fish are thriving – some of the bass are over a foot, and the Bluegills have also gotten big. We are just thrilled. Thank you so much for your responsiveness.
From an Eyesore to Thriving Ecosystem
In one season, SOLitude Lake Management turned the two lakes on my Virginia property from dead, weed-infested, eyesores into thriving, fish-filled, ecosystems – and they have maintained them as such ever since!
Pleased with the Quality of ServiceWe’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.
Top Notch Service
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 have still not returned. Considering how invasive this species is, this is quite an accomplishment!
Got Ponds Back Into Shape
We have 5 water features on the property and before SOLitude Lake Management came, our ponds were full of algae and aquatic weeds, looking very unhealthy. In the past 7 years, SOLitude has cleaned out our ponds and got them back into shape making them look like amazing water features as they should be.
Improved Water Quality Significantly
Shannon and Hunter are very professional and take a personal interest in taking the best care of our pond and more importantly, our pet koi fish. They have improved the water quality significantly and we are very pleased with their customer service.
SOLitude Helped Us Achieve Our Community Goals
As the manager of wetlands and open water for my community, I work with SOLitude Lake Management closely. They have helped us define our vision and achieve our goals. Every wetland area and body of water has different uses and different needs. SOLitude understands that and ensures those needs are met all the while keeping the budget in mind. We have annual fishing tournaments and they come out and talk with the anglers, explaining what we’ve done during the past year and what our future steps will be. Management of wildlife and waters is an ongoing and long-term commitment, SOLitude understands this. They have a dedicated staff that not only manages these areas but also helps educate their clients.
In Awe of SOLitude’s Knowledge
I want to thank you all for coming out and for an excellent report and meeting. SOLitude’s knowledge about the industry and all of the different species, habitats, and needs was impressive. We were sitting there with our mouths open in awe of SOLitude’s command of the subject. You all really know your species and their requirements. It was excellent!
They Are Simply the Best!
I hired SOLitude to help me out with a new pond in West Virginia. Heather was super helpful and knowledgeable in walking me through the process. She introduced me to Robert and they are simply the BEST. I have a lot of questions and they are super patient, helpful, and responsive. Most of all they both are knowledgeable (and pedigreed) in the world of aquatic life and health. It was a great decision to contract with SOLitude.
Excellent Service to Our Pond
They provide excellent service to our pond. Their reports are always comprehensive and detailed. And their customer service team is always quick to respond and friendly. A big shout out to Flo who was able to assist me when I was having issues accessing documents.
Responsive & Timely
SOLitude has done an excellent job maintaining our lake here in Alexandria, VA. They are responsive and timely in their follow-up to service requests and the repairs are quick and their team members are very professional. We would recommend them to maintain your lake or pond.
Thanks for the Professionalism & Commitment
I’m a property manager in Upperville, VA. I maintain a 100-acre farm with an 8-acre pond on the property. We hired SOLitude in the late winter to guide, educate, and help manage the pond. We recently held an event and the pond was the centerpiece. A huge thanks to Jackson – his professionalism and commitment to producing a quality product surpassed my expectations. I will recommend Jackson and his services to any and all after my experience.
Enjoy Working with Their Team
I have hired SOLitude for several different services at my work site and they have all been very successful. I really enjoy working with their team and look forward to using them in the future.
Our Ponds Look Fabulous
SOLitude has the most responsive team. We use them to manage the runoff ponds that we have in our community. They send updates and let us know what we need to do to keep our ponds looking fabulous.
Created A Space the Community Can Enjoy
Our community has a one-acre pond that SOLitude has managed for our 200 homes development. They have done a fine job in maintaining the health of the pond so that people can fish and enjoy the surrounding area, wildlife, and gardens. It is a true oasis in a declining area of green spaces for all to enjoy.

As president of a local property management firm, I rely heavily on the expertise of SOLitude. They are professional and very informative to clients.

The Little GOBBLERS Program Is A Blessing
The ‘Little GOBBLERs’ program has been a blessing to my school for years. Donations from a community-oriented company, such as SOLitude Lake Management, allow the school system to provide additional resources that otherwise these children and their families would not receive.
