Aquatic Weeds Aquatic weeds can be very destructive to an otherwise beautiful shoreline. While these can be quite the pain, they are at least easy to get rid of. All the person needs is the know-how and the wherewithal to get the job done. Here are some tips from the experts on how to get the job done in the easiest manner possible while still getting great results.
Weeds that are burrowed into the ground will need to be dug up. This can be done by using a shovel. There may be sensitive areas around the shoreline so some care must be taken but, all in all, it is a pretty easy task to accomplish. With the shovel, pry them up from the ground while also pulling outward so that the roots are completely removed as well. The crucial part of this procedure is to remove the roots or else they will keep coming back. Get the plants out of the water as this is their main source of life. Removing the roots and their ability to access water goes a long way towards killing the weeds off.
With a rake, it will be necessary to skim off any weeds floating on the surface of the water, if there are any. These weeds tend to be long and stringy so it is a quite easy task to accomplish. When leaning into the job, make sure not to fall into the water. This could prove dangerous and embarrassing, both at the same time. You can also use this method if there is a need to remove lily pads.
As you can see there is not much to it when it comes to aquatic weed removal. Just make sure to do it carefully and you will be good to go.
