Natural Lakeshore Restoration

Traditional lawns have few of the benefits of a more natural shoreline. Lawns are shallow rooted, provide little wildlife habitat, need frequent maintenance and are often over-fertilized. These factors can lead to problems on your lake such as: 

  • Shoreline erosion and lake sedimentation 

  • Algae blooms and excessive aquatic plant growth 

  • Loss of wildlife habitat, but an increase in nuisance animals 

  • Loss of leisure time due to increased maintenance time 

 

Creation of a buffer zone is the essence of the lakescaping concept. It is an opportunity to balance our needs and priorities with the needs and priorities of those with whom we share life at the edge of the water. Lakescaping and shoreland restoration can return many desirable features to your shoreline: 

  • Provide habitat for a wide variety of wildlife 

  • Filter out pollutants and runoff that degrade water quality 

  • Prevent shoreline erosion by absorbing wave action 

  • Enjoy abundant nature: flowers, shrubs, trees, aquatic plants, fish, insects, birds 

  • More leisure time to relax and enjoy the nature of life at the lakeshore
