Do you own a pond or lake on your property? Are you thinking of adding one or buying a new property that features a standing body of water? If so, there are a number of factors that you will need to keep in mind at all times. Water is not a property that simply looks after itself. There is a great deal of maintenance involved.
If You Want a Healthy Pond on Your Property, You'll Need a Consultant

Your best option will be to hire a lake maintenance consultant from Crosscreek Environmental. We are the experts who can show you how to properly maintain your new property.
The First Step is to Make a Comprehensive Water Analysis
The first thing that your lake maintenance consultant from Crosscreek Environmental will do is to make a complete analysis of the body in question. This will give them the ability to make expert predictions concerning what measures will be required in order to keep that body as clean and healthy as possible.
The analysis will be designed with a view toward discovering what the specific needs of this body of water will be. This is especially true in the case of aquatic animal and plant life. Once the study is completed, we will give you all of the details concerning what needs to be done to keep your property in the best possible shape.
What Kind of Services Does a Lake Maintenance Specialist Offer?
At this point, you may well be interested in learning more about the specific services that we are able to offer you. These can be roughly summarized in the following areas but will not be limited to those that are described here.
Frequent Monitoring of Your Pond's Water Quality
One of the most important things that we can for you is to give your lake or pond a frequent lookover to make sure that it maintains its pure quality. This is an absolute must if you want to stay ahead of potential pitfalls and developing issues. The purer the water, the happier your plants and aquatic animals will be and the safer it will be for your children to frolic in.
Routine Analysis of the Sediment in Your Water
Another important issue to consider is making sure that the sediment in your water is at a safe level. You don't want your pond or lake getting choked up with sediment. You also want to be sure that the composition of this sediment contains no dangerous or toxic substances, such as chemicals or algae.
Frequent Analysis of Algae and Other Noxious Substances
Speaking of algae, this is another dangerous substance that you need to stay on top. Toxic mold and algae can kill your water feature, leaving it stagnant and useless for many years to come. We know how to spot the first signs of an algae invasion so that we can quickly and safely nip it in the bud.
Of course, it's also important to realize that not all algae is dangerous. Every body of water will likely have a bit of algae in it. A proportionate amount of certain types of algae is beneficial. Our task will be to encourage a safe amount of the good algae and keep a tight lid on the bad stuff.
Frequent Testing and Analysis to Keep Your Water Healthy
Another important thing that we can do for you to is to spot all of the issues that your pond or lake may have and nip them in the bud before they can grow worse. This means performing frequent predictive tests to identify these future issues. The more often we come out to perform these tests, the more faith you can have in your pond or lake staying pure and healthy.
