Putting out the outdoor furniture by the pond

Since it is spring, I decided to put out the outdoor furniture by the pond. I did not put up all the furniture. I only put up the table and the rocking bench as my wife and I love to sit by the pond.

Western New York has a crazy weather. It snowed few days after I put out some of the outdoor furniture. It stills looks beautiful by the pond but you cannot sit and enjoy the scenery. I am so glad, that winter is finally over.

Public access to your property leads to finding debris and trash floating in your lake or pond periodically. Tree limbs can also find their way into the water from storms or beaver activity. Having this removed will keep the water cleaner and unwanted animal activity at bay. Debris can build up around drainage areas and cause localized flooding of your property. Make sure that these areas are kept clear at all times.

Aesthetic Pond and Lake Improvement

Areas that directly surround lakes and ponds need to be kept up in order to look aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Tall grasses need mowed, tree limbs trimmed and trash gathered for removal. Lake and pond monitoring experts can suggest methods of creating and maintaining the perfect relaxation area, without it costing a fortune.

Humane Removal of Nuisance Animals

Animals like beavers and muskrats can do a lot of damage to ponds and lakes. Beavers will bring down a lot of trees in the immediate area and use them to build a home on the water. They can burrow deep into pond dams and cause a breech in the integrity of the walls. Muskrats can clog pond drainage systems and cause serious flooding that can lead to damage of buildings, vehicles and personal belongings. The safe and humane removal of these types of animals is often necessary to protect the property.
