Aquatic weed is often given the perfect conditions to rapidly grow out of control and choke rivers, canals, lakes and ponds, sometimes within days. Although these weeds and plants can provide ideal habitats for small insects and creatures, aid in reducing the risks of bank erosion and even assist in absorbing pollution, they can also spoil the appeal and quality of a watercourse if they become too abundant.
The most cost effective way of dealing with aquatic weed within most watercourses, lakes and ponds is to use our aquatic weed boat in your maintenance schedule. The service comes fully operated by experienced staff and the boat is able to cover large areas much quicker than our weed raking system.
The boat is lowered into the water using a hydraulic trailer, which means no heavy lifting equipment or machinery is needed and this in turn means less disturbance to the surrounding land. All of the cutting is done from the water and then the waste plant life is lifted onto the river, lake or pond bank for clearance.
The boat is also able to collect aquatic weed such as “Water fern” and “Duckweed” using its high flow weed collection bucket. A cutter is not required for this process as the weed is not rooting, but it’s vital that the material is lifted and moved clear of the water and surrounding land.
We offer a free no obligation quotation for much of our aquatic weed management contracts and also offer a full consultancy service for larger more demanding waterbodies such as large lakes or reservoirs.
We supply all equipment and our services to both domestic and commercial clients throughout the United Kingdom.
