Detention/Retention Pond Mowing & Fertilizing Services

Monthly mowing is recommended to prevent unwanted growth of trees and bushes in ponds. Monthly mowing also helps stimulate growth, resulting in more established root systems which aid in creating healthy pond slopes that are less prone to deterioration, preventing costly pond repairs. In addition, we offer regular and properly timed fertilizing to help ensure healthy and strong vegetation growth. Our mowing and fertilizing services include:

  • Monthly or as-needed mowing around the immediate perimeter and down the slopes of the pond
  • Monthly or as-needed mowing of the bottom area of the pond, if accessible.
  • Monthly or as-needed fertilizing of the immediate vegetated perimeter of the pond, as well as down the slopes
  • Monthly or as-needed fertilizing of the bottom area of the pond, if accessible.

Pricing depends on pond size, frequency of service and whether fertilizing service is also needed.
