Aquatic Weed Control for your Waterfront

WeedRollerThis past winter, having been a mild one and the low level of water in our lakes means early and heavy invasive seaweed problems in all of our lakes, resulting in problems with weeds getting tangled up in boat propellers and personal water craft motors, not to mention the unsightly views from your shore.

You don’t want to use harmful chemicals and the use of weed removal products such as rakes can be troublesome, backbreaking and very labor intensive.

There are some options for you to consider.
WeedRoller option for a weed-free beach/swimming area and the – AquaSweep to get rid of the muck build-up.
We also carry other options such as mats, cutters and raking systems.

Imagine no more weeds in your swimming and docking area! It can happen.
Imagine getting rid of muck and silt, it can also happen.

Aquatic Weed Harvesting Rideau Canal System

Aquatic Weed Harvesting is the Real Answer to Aquatic Weed Control.

Aquatic Weed Havesting

Periodic weed harvesting of your waterfront areas will in many instances prove to be an effective means of aquatic plant control. The rooted aquatic weeds must produce sufficient food in their leaves to maintain their root systems. Frequent cuttings of the leaves will eventually lead to death of the root system. Like weeding the garden, it is necessary to watch for the early development of potential problems and remove the AQUATIC WEEDS as they become established and before they spread over large areas.

The more Aquatic Weeds you remove during the spring, summer and fall the less aquatic weeds that will be on your lake front or pond.

Call Jason at by telephone at 613 530 0486 to help with your complete Aquatic Control of Lake Weeds and full removal and disposal of aquatic plant growth.

Providing chemical free aquatic weed harvesting in the Rideau Lakes area and the Rideau Waterways and lakes in Eastern Ontario.

Approved by the Ministry of National Resources and Parks Canada who control the Rideau Canal Waterways.

No Weeds, No Muck, No Labor

Attention Cottage Owners,

Are you experiencing aquatic weeds taking over your shoreline, preventing you from enjoying a refreshing swim or causing your boat propellers to get tangled? This is an increasing problem in most lakes and ponds in the Rideau Lakes area.

There are a few solutions to control lake and pond weeds and seaweed removal without using harmful chemicals or slaving away for hours without removing the actual problem.

The WeedRoller detaches existing weeds and agitates the lake bed, leaving your swimming and docking area free of lake weeds. This prevents more weed growth for a clean, sandy lake bottom and a pleasant swimming area.

Another solution is to take advantage of the Aquatic Weed Harvester Service offered by Seaweed Doctor. Check our website

Resting Place, an Odd Establishment in Perth

Resting Place, an establishment that now occupies what used to be a vacant storefront along Wilson Street in Perth, is a hard place to describe. Those who have visited the place say that it’s a lot easier to ask what it’s not. When you get inside Resting Place, the first thing you see are fabrics draped artistically and a hodgepodge of mismatched chairs arranged in a quirky but attractive sort of way.

In a nutshell, Resting Place is an art gallery, classroom, ministry, and meeting place all in one. The establishment is fairly new, and it remains to be seen how it will fit into the Perth community.

According to one of the owners, Resting Place was created with the goal of hosting occasions where “love becomes art”, a place where people can pursue their dreams, whether it’s through exhibiting artwork, or teaching a classroom full of students.

Resting Place is also open to hosting all types of events and speakers. In fact, it recently hosted a workshop with Lise Lamontagne, a program called “Living the True Process”.

Resting Place doesn’t have regular hours, but those interested in having their events or exhibit featured can simply drop by. It is located at 5 Wilson Street, Perth.

Heritage Brick & Stone Craft

The fire is out, but the heat is on. It’s a comfortable way to drift into sleep at night, knowing you’ll be warm and safe.

This is no ordinary wood stove. When you have a Masonry Heater from Heritage Brick and Stone Craft in your home, you have far more than comfort and warmth. You have beauty. You have a work of art.

Thermal mass stoves have been around for centuries; but now, in the age of high fuel costs and environmental awareness, they are rapidly becoming a heat source of the times.

A Masonry Heater is 92 per cent efficient, doesn’t need much wood, and generates no wood-smoke emissions. It sounds perfect, and it is. It produces the gentle, consistent warmth of radiant heat without having to tear up your floors or build a new house to install it.

The wood in a Masonry Heater burns rapidly for an hour or two a day. After that, the warmth in the masonry mass is slowly and evenly distributed into your home for the next 12 to 24 hours depending on how well the home is insulated.

You have to see an example of the exquisite craftsmanship that goes into them. The craftsman is Colin Coveny, a mason with more than 30 years experience. He has been building his Masonry Heaters since 1990.

You can put your Masonry Heater on the main floor of your house and ask Colin to stylize it to suit your taste. You’ll find it will be a magnificent focal point. He adds interesting options: heated benches, for instance, and cook-stove tops, and hot water jackets.

It makes winter beautiful. You’ll never want to leave home.
