SOLitude Provided Wise Counsel
SOLitude provided wise counsel on how to keep our lake healthy and provided frequent onsite follow-up visits to check the success of new products. I am particularly impressed with the herbicide team!
Our Pond Is In Very Good Health
SOLitude manages a pond for us that is a shared responsibility between three entities. The health of our pond has been very good since they took over the maintenance. I would recommend SOLitude for pond maintenance needs.
Easy to Work With & Professional
SOLitude Lake Management has been a tremendous help with our two small ponds. Easy to work with and very professional. Customer service was excellent. Thank you, Kaitlyn and Matti.
The Water Is Crystal Clear
The water quality and clarity has been great! Our waterfall and fountain feature is located at the entrance of the community. We are mandated to use reclaimed water. The water is crystal clear.
Improved Our Lake’s Appearance & Health
SOLitude Lake Management was able to provide some experienced/expert advice regarding our unique lake environment. The follow-through on their recommendations has significantly improved our lake’s appearance and health. Their knowledge was an asset and their “in the field” personnel have been great to work with at our Golf Club.
SOLitude Solved All the Problems
SOLitude Lake Management did a great job. Dylan is the gentleman that works on two of our property ponds, and from day one, he’s solved all the problems. Very professional and explains every step of what he is doing.

Leslie Is One of the Best!
Leslie listened to my needs and concerns, she didn’t offer a fix until she surveyed the lake. It was refreshing to work with someone who cared enough to listen and plan out the best needs of service. If you’re looking for lake maintenance, she is one of the best! I highly recommend!
Very Professional & Responsive
The SOLitude team is my go-to for all my lake needs. Very professional and responsive. I know I will always be taken care of even when it is something extremely difficult. Their years of experience make them the best lake company in the valley. Highly recommended. Thanks, team!
Extremely Helpful & Friendly Staff
Extremely helpful and friendly staff that is always a pleasure to deal with. I have used this company for over 4 years now and they have provided great service and were able to deal with and correct problems that five other lake management companies were not able to even begin to address. I highly recommend this company for any of your lake service needs.
Responsive to Our Needs
SOLitude manages our 28 lakes at our Country Club and we have formed a great partnership with them and in particular Christina and Garrett. They are responsive to our needs and take the time to explain their process and ongoing management plans to staff, board members, and owners as well as answer their questions.
Professional & Knowledgeable
Working with SOLitude has been a great experience! Their professionalism, knowledge, response, and timing are the qualities that will give you peace of mind.
A Pleasure to Work with SOLitude
For the past 2 years as a member of our neighborhood board, I worked personally with Mitchell of SOLitude Lake Management. Our neighborhood has over 40 lakes & ponds. I can honestly say it was a pleasure to work with this vendor. Mitchell provided weekly updates and as our aquatics expert, he helped educate us and assisted in developing a restorative approach to our lake & pond management. It was a pleasure to work with such a knowledgeable representative. Thanks!
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.
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.

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.

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. In a busy industry such as this one, having someone that stays in touch is critical and appreciated. Hat’s off to SOLitude for a job well done!
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!
