Invasive Weeds Are Under Control

We have been using SOLitude’s services for the past three years for managing the neighborhood lake. Their service is excellent. All type of weeds including water hyacinth is now under control without harming the marine ecosystem. The technician who services the lake always makes sure all individual complaints of the resident are taken care of. Will definitely recommend their service, especially for big ponds and lakes.

Pond Is Completely Clear

When SOLitude came to our rescue, our pond was covered in water lettuce. As each month went by, the pond became clearer and clearer until now it is completely clear and I am completely grateful that the beautiful, clear pond that was there when we moved in 36 years ago, is once more. Thanks to Mike and everyone at SOLitude who made this possible!
