Natural Pond - Finchingfield

The Brief

This natural pond had been suffering with the overgrowth of reeds year after year and pulling them out by hand each year only brought them back the same the following year. We were asked by the client if there was a better way of removing them from the pond.


The Solution

Instead of pulling the reeds out by hand yet again we advised on using a long reach excavator with a special weed rake attachment. The idea here was to remove the reeds plus the roots on the pond floor but without taking the clay lining up with it. Any reeds that may appear the following year can be sprayed with aquatic safe hebicide.
