Management of Aquatic Plants
Overabundant aquatic plant and algae growth can ruin the aesthetic appeal of a pond and cause damage to the pond environment. While these plants and algae can grow abundantly and interfere with various pond uses, they also provide many benefits to the pond if their growth is limited. This publication will help pond and lake owners understand the benefits of aquatic plants, how to identify them, what causes them to grow, and various strategies to control unwanted plant and algae growth.
