Homeowners Are Happy with Results

SOLitude has been maintaining our community lakes for the past two years and they are now in excellent shape. Before we switched to SOLitude, we had severe problems with algae growth during the summer. They were able to analyze the problem and over a period of about a year get the lakes cleared up. Our homeowners are very happy with the results.

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!

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!
