Pond and Lake Management Tampa, FL

Throughout the greater Tampa area, Estate Management Services is committed to maintaining ponds and lakes that are healthy, beautiful and add value to their surrounding property. With a scientifically based approach that balances natural beauty with ecologically sound practices, we have spent three years perfecting the art of water management.

What We Offer

Our services are designed to not only leave your pond or lake healthy and beautiful, but to give you the peace of mind that you are in full compliance with local, state and federal environmental laws. Some of our services include:

Lake and Pond Management: Through regular dredging, water quality monitoring and maintenance, we strengthen the natural balance of your pond’s plant and animal life. Building on this protective natural ecosystem ensures a pond that is healthy, free of algae blooms and in compliance with all regulations including the Clean Water Act.

Dredging and Harvesting of Sediment and Muck: The sediment and build-up on the floor of your pond or lake occurs naturally through its life span, but an overabundance can disrupt its natural balance by drawing oxygen away from plant and animal life and encouraging algae growth. Regular removal, with dredging as needed, promotes water quality and makes water more easily navigable for recreational activities and fishing.

Algae and Aquatic Weed Control: Just as excessive sediment can leech oxygen from the water, overgrown plant life can have a detrimental effect on the pond or lake’s fish population. Curbing this growth helps fish thrive, avoid shallowing from excessive sedimentation and helps prevent harmful algae blooms.

Fountain and Aeration Installation and Maintenance: The presence of aeration, either through a sub-surface bubbler or fountain, can create a healthier and more oxygenated environment for plants and fish, can reduce odors and keeps a pond from becoming stagnant.

Fish Stocking and Management: Creating an ecosystem of diverse aquatic life in your pond or lake can have a massive impact on its overall health. These fish not only protect against invasive species and curb excess plant growth, but their presence also makes your body of water attractive for fishing and swimming.

Comprehensive Water Quality Testing and Restoration: While our approach gives your pond or lake a natural defense against algae blooms and nutritional imbalance, regular monitoring ensures that any issues with water quality are addressed before they become hazards or regulatory compliance liabilities.

Lake Mapping and Bathymetric Surveys: We create an accurate map of your pond or lake’s contours and depths, providing safer and easier navigation by boat, a more inviting atmosphere for swimmers, and easier identification of any potential hazards.

Shoreline Erosion Management: Through the use of retaining walls, riprap and vegetation, we can preserve the natural shoreline of your pond or lake, reducing the amount of sediment that enters the water and protecting your property from land loss.

Insect Control: Insects not only create a less hospitable environment for swimmers, boaters and anglers, they can serve as transmission vectors for diseases from West Nile to Zika virus. Our approach creates an environment that deters insect growth, but we can also apply larvicide or manage habitat to further inhibit insects.
