We Work Together To Offer Exceptional Service

Controlled Invasive Plant Growth

Phragmites had taken over our waterfront and choked out the wildlife access to our pond. SOLitude worked in conjunction with our engineer to procure the necessary coastal and environmental permitting. We are now in year one of a multi-year plan to control invasive plant growth. Almost immediately, the wildlife returned to our pond. Well done SOLitude!

John Greim

Private Landowner, East Greenwich, RI

Go-To for Wetland Preservation

Liz was extremely helpful in providing diligent and competitive pricing and pushed aggressively to meet our deadlines. The quality exceeded expectations and the service was first class! I strongly recommend SOLitude Lake Management to anyone seeking wetland/preservation/lake or even pond maintenance and/or mitigation of EPD. SOLitude performed our initial wetland preservation mitigation to clean and treat for invasive species of plants and maintain/treat on-site ponds & wetlands. Great job Liz & SOLitude!

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.

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!

Leah Aguilar

Operations Superintendent, York County, VA

Improved Water Quality Significantly

Improve Our Water Quality

SOLitude Lake Management visited our Miami Lakes Community to obtain water samples as part of the Town of Miami Lakes lake water improvement initiative.

Hope Reynolds

Responsive & Resolved Our Issues

SOLitude has managed our community’s 24 lakes for many years and we are very satisfied with their performance. One of our lakes has been experiencing regular algae blooms and SOLitude’s biologist, Christina, performed a comprehensive lake and water analysis to determine the cause of the problem. Recommendations were presented and the problem was resolved. The SOLitude technician, Maxwell, is in control of managing our littoral plants and is very responsive to resolving identified issues.

Improve Your Lake’s Water Quality with SOLitude

I have worked with SOLitude for many years at our HOA with our lakes committee.

Healthy Water Quality & Fish

Got Ponds Back Into Shape

The Little GOBBLERS Program Is A Blessing

Recommend Without Hesitation

I have used SOLitude’s services for about five years. They have turned my pond into a very fine little fishery for bass and bluegills. They have also made the pond much more attractive. SOLitude’s consultants check my pond on a regular basis and I have found them all to be knowledgeable, friendly, and very service oriented.

Positive Results

My subdivision in College Station, Texas, has two lakes and SOLitude Lake Management took over water and shoreline management six months ago. While we still have occurrences of water weeds, algae, and duckweed, we are getting on top of the problems much quicker. While we are only halfway into our 1st-year contract, these early, positive results are encouraging. We appreciate the service and especially the science SOLitude brings to our relationship.

John Himmel

College Station, TX

Pond Care That Allows Me to Relax

I needed on-site pond care that the local pond management companies could not service. I gave the SOLitude specialist who comes 100+ miles 20 times per year the title, “Director of Ponds & Streams”. He is that good. They are organized and responsive to the degree that allows me to relax.

Tom Snyder

Private Landowner, Sapphire, NC

Service Has Been Excellent

Our Lake Is In The Best Condition

Our lake had portions of it that you couldn’t get a kayak through. We used to call SOLitude when we saw a problem, but then it was too late. We entered into an annual contract for them to periodically inspect our lake and treat it accordingly. SOLitude’s employee, Jeff, calls regularly, visits our lake, inspects it, and if needed, treats whatever required -We have not had any major weed or algae problem. Many of our members have commented that the lake is in the best overall condition in a long time. I am very pleased with their constant care of our lake.

Neil Magargal

Private Landowner, Oak Ridge, NJ

From Swap to Beautiful, Clear Pond

For about 30 years I watched the encroachment of weeds across my pond, limiting not only our recreational use but our aesthetic appreciation as well. SOLitude Lake Management came in with their hydro-raking harvester and clear it all out! It was the first time I could swim across the entire pond! No swamp, just beautiful water that passers-by slow down to look at.

Dean Jacques

Private Landowner, Chester, CT

Successfully Eradicated Hydrilla

I’ve been battling Hydrilla milfoil for a number of years, without great success. I stumbled across SOLitude Lake Management online and I’m so glad I did! Noel and his team of professionals listened to our problem, gave advice, and developed a management plan for our lake. They applied a very thorough milfoil-specific treatment and now, all of the visible weed is eradicated! I wish I would’ve found this company years ago! I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a team to help with any lake weed issues.

Shawn Ridgley

Private Landowner, Grand Junction, CO

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!

Dawn Crawford

HOA President, PA

Our Clear Lake Wouldn’t Be Possible Without SOLitude

Our Lake Association believes that good service and good results deserve a positive review. We’ve been doing business with SOLitude for about 25 years. The results of their treatments are quite obvious because of the amount of recreational use our lake gets during the summer months that wouldn’t be possible without the weed control SOLitude provides. Back in 1986, the lake became almost unusable because of the invasive weed problem. After two years of treatments, the lake became what it is today – a beautiful body of water that is usable for all summer recreation. SOLitude has been great to do business with. Their people are responsive to any issues and are always ready and willing to help in any way they can. We are happy to recommend them to any lake or pond association that may need assistance dealing with weed problems.

Frank Fiorentino

Lake Association President, Ashburnham, MA

Pond Is Completely Clear

When SOLitude came to our rescue, our pond was covered in water lettuce.

Thanks to Mike and everyone at SOLitude who made this possible!

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 Service

We’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.

Taken A Huge Burden Off My Shoulders

We used to struggle with many different issues on holes 15, 16, and 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 few 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

SOLitude Provided the Perfect Solution

Our Club was more interested in a mechanical removal approach to our weed problem versus a broad-spectrum chemical treatment. Jeff Castellani and his team developed a plan that was well suited for our environmentally sensitive location. The mechanical hydro-raking service that SOLitude provided was the perfect solution and worked very well in our shallow irrigation pond… We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years.

Satisfied & Grateful for Great Service

SOLitude is an excellent company that has been servicing my lake for several years. Dominic has been overseeing our program for over 20 years.  His experience, knowledge, professionalism, and integrity are outstanding.  Under his leadership, our lake has improved dramatically and it continues to get better every year.  Additionally, Amanda has played a key role since she joined SOLitude.  She always promptly replies to my inquiries and provides outstanding customer service.  We are completely satisfied and grateful for the great service we receive and the results are clearly evident in our beautiful lake.

My Pond Is Finally Nice to Look At

This company is amazing! I called and explained the issues I was having with my pond, and Josh came out and assessed my pond. After doing so, he was able to put together a regiment that helped bring my pond back to where it is nice to look at! I would recommend this company to all of my friends and family!

Created An Oasis All 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.

SOLitude Came to Our Rescue

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!

Pleasure to Work With

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!

Highly Recommend SOLitude

SOLitude services all the water, weed, and algae requirements for our Condominium Lake which 7 buildings back up to. Our Aquatic Specialist Ean does a fabulous job taking care of all our needs and has many owners complimenting on how great our water looks. Ean is just a phone call away and shows up immediately. He is always friendly and very knowledgeable and takes care of the issues. I would highly recommend this company to anyone for your lake water needs.

From Swamp to Beautiful Water

For about 30 years I watched the encroachment of weeds across my pond, limiting not only our recreational use but our aesthetic appreciation as well. SOLitude Lake Management came in with their hydro-raking harvester and clear it all out! It was the first time I could swim across the entire pond! No swamp, just beautiful water that passers-by slow down to look at.

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.

Extraordinarily Happy with SOLitude

Our neighborhood has been working with SOLitude and we have been extraordinarily happy. Prior to our relationship with them, we had contracted with another company that was less than professional in many ways. This has not been the case with SOLitude! They are professional, communicative, prompt, and do an excellent job at what we have asked them to do. We appreciate this company and its employees very much.

Excellent Pond and Fisheries Management Experts!

After I had to drain my pond in 2010 to fix the dam, I took the opportunity to start from scratch. I contacted SOLitude to help guide my long-term management. Two years after my original stocking, we electroshocked for the first time. Based on the electroshock survey and Dave Beasley’s advice, I restocked 10,000 larger bluegills. My friends call me when they have “Daddy day” because they know they can come to my pond and their kids will catch bluegill bigger than my hand until they get tired of it. After 4 years, the bass are reaching 6 pounds, and in an hour, enough heavy bass can be caught that would beat a full day’s fishing on any lake in the region. Without SOLitude and Dave Beasley, despite all my research, my pond would be in an ever-worsening downward spiral. Now SOLitude and annual electrofishing surveys to keep me on track are a permanent part of my pond management plan.

What A Great Company!

When looking online for a new fish feeder, we had unpleasant experiences with two local fisheries. I decided to call a feeder manufacturer in San Antonio, who recommended SOLitude Lake Management. They were terrific! Paul Dorsett called me directly and was so kind and helpful. He arranged for a feeder to be delivered and set up for us. Although Paul was out of town, he sent his “ace” out, Ryan Young. Ryan and Alex Harrison were efficient, answered all questions, and were very nice young men. Paul even followed up to make certain that everything went smoothly. What a great company! Customer service is what it’s all about these days and SOLitude Lake Management knows exactly that.

Proof Is In The Pudding

Paul Dorsett and the rest of the team at SOLitude have done an absolutely wonderful job in helping us to create Lake Willis! In just a few short years we have gone from having just a few baitfish and perch, to catching a nearly 9-pound bass (our new record). Now if we could just have more time to fish as recommended, we could take out the 300 fish that need to come out. As far as we are concerned, we followed SOLitude’s recommendations and our fish have averaged growing of 2 pounds per year…proof is in the pudding!

A Truly Valuable Investment

We began with two small lakes that were never managed 10 years ago. With SOLitude’s help and expertise we expanded both lakes from 2 acres to 6 acres and began a monthly management program. We went from a spotty fish population to trophy bass with some over 10 pounds! SOLitude is efficient and really cares about the lake ecosystem. Seeing my three-year-old granddaughter catch her first bass makes the investment truly valuable. Thanks, SOLitude.

From Frustrating to 100% Fishable

When we hired SOLitude, our 12-acre lake was about 1/3 full of lily pads and hydrilla which were frustrating to the fish. Within 4-6 months, the lake became 100% fishable and the coloring and bloom were much more attractive. The recent addition of 8 or so built brush piles has added much-needed structure for bait fish and is now a great target that is producing bass on every other cast! A very common afternoon will produce 100 fish a day.

The Best Choice Is SOLitude Lake Management

If you’d like to manage your waters (or watershed) professionally – then the best choice is SOLitude Lake Management. If you fish, then it’s more important. I had the good fortune to fish a property managed by SOLitude BEFORE I needed a pond management company…those excellent results made my final choice easy. I’m sure that every firm is good – but if the phrase “by fishermen for fishermen!” rings true with you – then there is one choice: SOLitude Lake and Pond Management. They care and it shows.
