Executive Mansion Water Feature Project

A client with the Executive Mansion reached out to us regarding a neglected waterfall on their property. The waterfall was a focal point for the landscape but had become severely overgrown and was leaking. The Triangle Pond team cleared the surrounding area of overbrush and debris and then disassembled, rebuilt, and extended the waterfall to allow a greater field of view.

Fall and Winter is the Optimal Time for Liming Your Pond

Fall and winter is the optimal time of the year to have us add lime to your pond. Liming is important in ponds since the proper water pH is 6.5 to 9.0, much higher than that needed in terrestrial systems. Low water pH can reduce and later stop fish reproductive success, and dramatically high or low pH can cause fish kills. Liming ponds will adjust the pH and alkalinity so that fertilization will increase pond productivity, increasing fish production by about 300% and improving water quality for fish.

Triangle Pond Management provides its clients expert pond management based on science. We offer full management plans for pond maintenance and Trophy Bass Management. If you have concerns or questions about your pond, please contact us today for a consultation. Our expert Fisheries Biologist will help design a maintenance plan that works best for your pond and your management goals.

Turfgrass Remediation for Stormwater Control

TurfgrassMany 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 an SCM/BMP being in a state of compliance. One of the most predominant 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.
