Turfgrass Remediation for Stormwater Control

Many municipalities are becoming increasingly stringent with their regard towards
stormwater compliance and the conditions that they will no longer accept at the time of
annual inspection. There are many factors that contribute to a SCM/BMP being in a state
of compliance. One of the most predominate is the presence of healthy perennial turf
coverage in and around the footprint of the SCM/BMP. Many annual inspections will fall in
a window during the year (Winter/Summer) that is not conducive to the establishment of
this perennial vegetation. In this case the only way to remain in compliance is to
implement costly repairs such as sodding and watering. Or attempting repeated seeding
efforts which often do not produce full coverage year after year. Continue reading Turfgrass Remediation for Stormwater Control

Mallard Release Day 2020

The Wildlife Management Team at Triangle Pond recently released nearly one thousand live mallard ducks on various properties of our waterfowl clients around North Carolina.
Birds were delivered and released across the state, from the western foothills all the way to the eastern Carolina coast.

Releasing live ducks is another tool property owners can use as part of an overall management plan to attract more waterfowl. These live decoys swim and call and live in the owner’s existing habitat, which in turn catches the eyes and ears of wild ducks for increased hunting or viewing opportunities. We strongly recommend releasing live ducks on newly constructed or newly obtained areas to start establishing a property as an annual stop on the wild duck’s migration south.

Contact the Biologists on the TPM Wildlife Team for help managing your habitat for waterfowl, construction, riser drains, blinds, and planting services.

“Controlling Invasive Non-Beneficial Aquatic Plants with Triploid Grass Carp”

We are near the end of Summer here in good ole NC and the weeds are thriving! I know for myself I could mow my lawn three times a week and then some. This same issue is happening in aquatic ecosystems throughout the southern states and it happens every time during the spring and summer months with the mild winters not helping the problem. If you have a pond on your property you know exactly what I’m talking about? You got it! Hydrilla, Primrose, Parrots Feather, Duckweed and Watermeal just to name a few species. Some of these noxious non-beneficial plants cannot be eradicated without causing damage to the aquatic ecosystem (ie. Harming the beneficial aquatic plants, fish and wildlife) and controlling some of these plant species is a fight from late March to early October. In todays “We want to be clean and green world” how do biologically control invasive plant species that thrive in our aquatic ecosystems? If nature caused it can nature fight it? Let’s look at Triploid Grass Carp…

The Winds of Change

On March 11, 2020, life as we knew it changed. As individual states and municipalities issued a “Shelter in Place” order across the country, many Americans were forced to work remotely and home school their children via Zoom Meetings and Virtual Classroom. It seemed the only safe place was our homes, yards, and anything outdoors! People turned to their favorite local and state parks until the order was given to close those resources for social distancing. As a result, many of us went back to the ancient practices of sitting on our porches and decks while the kids played in the yard. What do people do when they’re tired of staring at computer screens doing virtual business and school? You turn to your most available resource… your home! Continue reading The Winds of Change

Turf Grass Remediation at Your Stormwater Control Measure

As many of you are aware, municipalities have become increasingly stringent with regard to enforcement of deficient conditions, they will no longer accept at the time of the annual stormwater control measure (SCM) inspection (Formally referred to as BMP). One particular hot button item that is heavily scrutinized by all municipalities is the presence of a stabilizing, hardy perennial vegetative cover in and around the SCM. Unfortunately, many of the annual inspection dates fall at a time of year that is not conducive to the establishment of a perennial (or permanent) vegetative cover from seed. With this being said, vegetative repairs performed during compromising seasons of the year (i.e. summer or winter) require repeat applications indefinitely, leaving the soil unarmored and subject to erosion for a good portion of the year. This results in increased cost burden and liability which most property owners and managers would prefer to eliminate. Continue reading Turf Grass Remediation at Your Stormwater Control Measure
