The Importance of Native Buffer and Littoral Plants

Establishing a beneficial buffer around your lake or pond’s shoreline and the littoral zone will help improve water quality by filtering out excess nutrients before they enter the water column. Beneficial plants also help stabilize your shoreline and help prevent erosion. It’s important to note that not all plants can be beneficial. Invasive vegetation like Phragmites is often found around waterbodies, however, this plant can damage an ecosystem by overcrowding native vegetation. 

Which Plants Are Best For Your Region?

It’s vital that you check which plants are native to your area as beneficial plant species vary from region to region. Selecting vegetation that is native to your area will help ensure that your beneficial buffer thrives. Click your state below to learn which beneficial plants are native to your area.

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!

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
