Aquatic Weed Removal Services

Common Types of Pond & Lake Weeds

There are a number of different types of pond and lake weeds native to the Houston area. Without adequate protection, your property or aquatic life can be at risk. Our weed-clearing solutions are guaranteed to reduce unwanted plants to ensure the safety and health of your waterway. Here are a few types of pond and lake weeds that we can help you control.

  • Floating Weeds & Plants

    In shallow ponds, floating weeds and plants are more common. Some floating plants such as water lilies or water hyacinths can produce beautiful flowers in small quantities. However, as they grow in number, these floating plants can cover your entire pond. This reduces oxygen levels and can cause fish deaths.

  • Watermeal & Duckweed

    Watermeal and duckweed are the two most problematic pond weeds. They are unattractive, difficult to control, and can negatively impact your pond’s quality. Watermeal reproduces quickly so you should act fast if you see these tiny green plants that resemble cornmeal or sand grains.

    Duckweed can be mistaken for algae because it is larger than algae. However, algae do not have a root system while duckweed does. It has a small hair-like root on its underside. Once established, duckweed can quickly take over the entire surface of your pond and cut off oxygen for fish and other wildlife.

  • Submerged Weeds

    These pond weeds, as the name implies, are usually found under or near the water’s surface. American pondweed is the most popular, with its soft stems and oval-shaped foliage. Some leaves are submerged while others lie just below the water’s surface. There are many varieties of pondweed available, including Illinois pondweed, curly leaf, and Sago pondweed.

  • Emerged Weeds

    Emerged pond weeds tend to gather near the shoreline, and can grow very tall, such as cattails, purple loosestrife, or shoreline grass. Bulrushes are also a problem around the shoreline.

    White water lily, another emergent pondweed, can be a problem. While a few white water lilies may look beautiful in your pond’s landscape, they can also cause serious problems. This invasive weed is a hard one that can quickly grow and outcompete native plants along your shoreline.
