Lake Management : Aquascaping: Plantings that help the lake
Posted by rjc23 on 2004/6/6 22:37:22 (358 reads)


Allied Biological of Hackettstown, NJ has priced out a spring planting special for Truesdale Lake residents. The service includes 100 feet of plantings along your shoreline starting at $995 (see brochure in Downloads section for more details).

Excerpt from a note from the President of Allied Biological:
Quote:

Thanks for your inquiry regarding our Spring Planting Special. The approximate length of 100' is an estimate based on 2 feet of water and 1 foot of land. Of course, the actual length and width of the planting will depend on your shoreline profile. In general, the more plants in the water, the better for the lake. The outward expansion of plants will also depend on the slope of the shoreline. By not selecting deeper-water species (i.e. Nymphaea), we can limit the encroachment out into the lake.

You're correct that Yellow Iris is often considered an invasive
species. We include it as a possibility because it is the most popular choice among shoreline plantings. If you don't want it, that's certainly not a problem. We can limit the planting to only native species. In general, that is our intent, with a couple exceptions.

The weed control treatments we conduct are generally not a problem for shoreline emergent plants. On the off years when fluridone is used, the plants may whiten temporarily, but the other products will have no effect.

You will also have to consider whether the grass carp will graze them. My guess is probably yes, so it would probably require some in-water fencing to keep the carp away.

I attached a file for your use. By the way, the deadline is extended until June 30.

Thanks again for your interest.
