Using Aquatic Weed Killer — Could You See The Difference?

I stopped over to a friend’s cottage — he and his neighbor had put weed killer on their lake weeds and were surveying the results.

“I think it may have helped a little,” my friend, Gordy said.

“I don’t think it worked worth a damn — not for what we spent,” the neighbor said.

Do-it-yourself aquatic weed control, often has disappointing results.

“How much did this weed killer cost?” I asked.

“We spent 200 bucks each,” said the neighbor. “It wasn’t worth it.”

“There seems to be a few less weeds,” Gordy said.

“Ain’t worth a damn,” said the neighbor.

For $400 — Id want to see proof the chemicals worked

It looked about the same to me — a lot of lake weeds left. For a $400 roll of the dice on chemicals to kill lake weeds, I’d want to see real proof it worked.

To me, that’s just one problem with chemical lake weed killers. It doesn’t get rid of all the lake weeds — and it’s a pretty expensive form of aquatic weed management.

With a LakeMat — your lake weeds are gone naturally

Lake weed control, using chemicals, can be expensive and frustrating. I prefer to control lake weeds naturally. The simple way to get rid of weeds where you want is with lake weed control mats, to deprive them of nutrients and sunlight,

The LakeMat does both. It’s the most efficient, pro-green, most cost effective, best lake weed control method you’ll find.

The Trouble with Lily Pads

There are a lot of tough lake weeds. For me, I think lily pads are the worst. Once they get started, good luck trying to get rid of them. Lilies spread by their root system under the soil, so for every one you see on the surface there can be a dozen or more ready to pop up.

Fall is a Great Time to Install LakeMats and MuckMats

We get asked a lot, “When is the best time to install these Mats?” Even though there’s lots of other things to think about in the fall, remember those lake weeds and muck will be waiting for you next year. Fall is a great time to deal with your weeds and muck for several reasons.

MuckMat Pro Holds up Your Dock

Like a lot of you, before I invented the MuckMat, having a dock was more trouble than it was worth. I tried a floating dock, but it wasn’t very stable. When people came to visit, we were always concerned someone would fall in… and of course, they did from time to time.
