The Importance Of Keeping Your Aquatic Control Work Green
Aquatic environments add a certain amount of elegance to commercial properties. Ponds and fountains can provide eco-systems for plant life and animals, like fish and turtles. But it is important that the environment provided by your aquatic structure does no harm. For this reason, it is important that you keep your aquatic control work green.
Maintaining an aquatic environment takes work. Allowing stagnant water to fester creates nothing but problems. Many companies use herbicides and chemicals that may damage the environment. To avoid the consequences of pollution, Pro-Lawns, Inc. uses green methods that don't harm the environment.
Damage Caused by Herbicides
Herbicides, preparations designed to kill plants and weeds, are often used in the management and control of weeds and algae that may grow in an aquatic environment. While herbicides are an effective method of control, they are also notoriously harsh on the environment. They may kill wanted plants as well as the bad ones or come into contact with animal life accidentally. In addition, herbicides may seep into soil and groundwater sources, polluting drinking water and possibly resulting in the direct or indirect killing of other plants, fish and animals.To ensure the safety and good health of your aquatic structure, Pro-Lawns uses only herbicides that have been approved for use by the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Environmental Protection Agency.
We also use Missouri Department of Conservation-approved methods to handle other common problems that surround water-holding structures, including pests and geese that may disturb the peace in the area.
Qualified professionals directly administer herbicides to the problem plants as carefully as possible to avoid contamination with other plants and animals that may potentially come into contact with them.
Pro-Lawns' experts select each herbicide in accordance with what type of plant or weed has gotten out of control. Used properly, herbicides are often more environmentally-friendly than mechanical means because they can be applied to the problematic growths without disturbing or harming wanted plant and animal life.
If other problems arise, some plants and algae can be removed by hand, without disturbing the wanted plants and creatures dwelling in the aquatic system.
To ensure proper aquatic control, Pro-Lawns' experts constantly maintain pumps and water flow equipment and keep a constant watch for any problems that arise, without using harsh aquatic control methods like chemicals.
