Summer is here. Do you have a pond, or house/cabin with lake shore? A great way to cool off is to take a dip in the lake and then relax on your beach. There are many ways that you can improve your dock and aquatic recreational area.
Get rid of unwanted submerged weeds automatically with the LAKEMAID®. The LAKEMAID® is a light weight, lake weed and muck removal machine that will expose the clean, sandy bottom beneath.

All units have “one person” installation and can easily be moved around and shared. Watch our LAKEMAID® video!
You can also clean up the organic debris that is in the water with MuckMaid®. It will help improve your water clarity will devouring the muck. It is easy to apply and has no restrictions for swimming. You will see great results in just weeks and can get back to enjoying the pond or lakefront.
The best kit for removing lake weeds in your dock and swimming area would be our RestoreAccess® kit. This kit controls submerged weeds like milfoil and hydrilla and it also kills algae around your dock or swim area. Also included is our MuckMaid® to eliminate the muck. If you are looking for a granular form of this kit, we have the RestoreAccess® “G”. It includes Hydrothol Granular for controlling a wide range range of submerged weeds or algae and includes MuckMaid® for getting rid of any organic build up.
For cleaning up the beach sand area, remove large rocks and then use a screening rake to help sift through the smaller rocks. If you have unwanted weeds or grass in the beach area, using our Open Water Kit to effectively kill grass, weeds, poison ivy and woody brush around your pond or lake. It is excellent for beach areas above the water line. Not only will you kill the plant, you will kill the root!
Now that you have gotten rid of your aquatic weeds, keep the geese off of your nice beach and manicured lawn with the Goose D-Fence® System. The Goose D-Fence® system is a patented, retractable fence that keeps unwanted geese off of your property. When it comes time to play, mow, or access the water, just wind it up. It can be installed or removed within 10 minutes and the best part is that it is inconspicuous and attractive.
Don’t forget about safety. Be prepared with a Life Ring or a Rescue Station.
A great addition to your beach area would be adding an outdoor eating space. Complete it with lawn chairs, a picnic table, and even a fire pit for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs. Having a place to relax or play outside of the water is an added bonus. Enjoy your hard work and beautiful oasis!
