Florida Pond and Lake Management

Pond and Lake Management

There’s nothing quite like a lazy evening by the water in Florida. The lakes and ponds in this beautiful stretch of country are full of diverse life and fun activities the whole family can enjoy. However, if you’re responsible for maintaining a lake or pond in this region, you know that while its beauty comes naturally, it is definitely not low maintenance.

The experts at Estate Management Services know what it takes to keep up a water ecosystem. We get down and dirty to stop pollutants, weeds, and erosion at the source, keeping the water and its inhabitants healthy. Local governments, homeowner’s associations, hotels, golf courses, and wildlife organizations alike use professional pond and lake management companies to safeguard the future of their oases. Estate Management Services’ comprehensive services cover everything from insect control to regulatory compliance.

A thriving lake or pond ecosystem can turn into a costly, barren nightmare when threats go unchecked over the years. Don’t let a sudden algae bloom or preventable flood ruin your recreation season – learn more about how professional water management services can give you peace of mind.

Stewardship for the Long Term

Managing any body of water is a great responsibility. These bodies of water are vital for humans and the great wildlife we all enjoy, and there’s an art and a science to giving them the best care. Like a controlled burn on the forest floor, regular pond or lake maintenance, along with dredging and harvesting is a necessary process for the ongoing health and integrity of a lake or pond.

By dredging out extra sediment and debris, we keep water clean and clear for year-round use. The benefits don’t stop in the short term. Dredging is regular maintenance that pays big dividends for your lake or pond’s future. Regular dredging and harvesting protect your property by:

  1. Bolstering runoff retention, preventing floods during heavy rains
  2. Restoring lake and ponds’ natural bottoms, giving wildlife a more stable and lush home
  3. Rooting out invasive weeds that are dangerous to native wildlife
  4. Keeping water at predictable depths and temperature

Dredging and other efforts undertaken by lake and pond management experts protect not only the body of water, but the surrounding land. Properties with healthily managed bodies of water are at minimal risk for erosion and ecological disaster, and are more usable and valuable for their owners.

The public is also a huge part of proper water stewardship. Lake and pond management experts communicate and educate the surrounding community about how the health of the waterway affects them and how to avoid harmful, anti-wildlife practices. We are partners of landowners, the earth, and all the planet’s living creatures.

Regular Water Maintenance Keeps Your Pond or Lake


Think of regular pond and lake maintenance like keeping up with your annual physicals at the doctor’s office. With advanced testing and observation, we stay on the lookout for pollutants, unbalanced nutrients and aquatic weeds that might become larger water health issues down the road.

Algae and aquatic weeds aren’t just unsightly; they can be dangerous for the people and animals that enjoy the water. Weed overgrowth leeches oxygen from the water and can cripple natural food chains and fish populations. We keep algae in check with aeration techniques and environmentally friendly algaecides and pond dye treatments when needed. Keeping nutrients balanced is key not just to controlling weeds, but the health of the water and its inhabitants in general.

Pond and Lake Management


No one likes a scummy pond or lake. We provide sediment and muck removal to keep your water clean and clear for swimming, boating, fishing, or simply aesthetics. By keeping up with these regular water cleaning chores, we’re also minimizing the risk of more expensive restoration efforts in the future.

Proactive fish stocking and management helps an ecosystem flourish, providing a huge variety of fish and wildlife for serious anglers and nature lovers to enjoy. This delicate science enhances your lake or pond’s appeal to tourists and residents by creating a lush, interesting environment full of nature’s wonders.

One of the top annoyances for lake and pond visitors is all of the bugs an unkempt body of water attracts. Luckily, proper lake and pond management can cut down on the bloodsuckers without disturbing the natural balance of the environment. Remember, insects are more than just a nuisance – they’re a health hazard. Protect against the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses like Zika and West Nile with insect control measures.

Fountains are one insect deterrent that has other benefits for standing bodies of water. Estate Management Services installs and maintains fountains and other aeration systems to infuse oxygen into the water and keep it flowing. This leaves egg-laying insects with less of a foothold and reduces buildup that causes foul smells and unhealthy fish. 


Lakes and ponds are vulnerable to pollution in our chemical-leaden world. All too often, lakes and ponds are being affected by chemical runoff from the area that you might not even be aware of. Local construction or excessive fertilizer use nearby can severely impact your body of water. With regular testing and cleaning, we can catch issues before a true environmental crisis blooms.

Up to Government Code

There’s a reason the federal and local governments have adopted so many legal regulations around bodies of water: they know how important it is to protect these cornerstone natural resources. Unfortunately, their good faith efforts can create a confusing maze for landowners and managers.

Estate Management Services knows environmental law inside and out, and will comply with the Clean Water Act and local ordinances and permits while caring for your lake or pond.  

Safe & Accessible

Do you have a true understanding of the depths and contours of your lake or pond? Using bathymetric surveys, we can map the terrain, finding submerged objects and other potential hazards you might not be aware of.

Not only do boaters and swimmers benefit from this safety information, but knowing more about your water helps us figure out how best to help it. This info is vital for conservation plans.
