“It’s time to go green when preventing
weed growth in your lake or pond. The Aquatic WeedBlock®
is the only completely environmentally safe bottom screen
market that does not require removal at the end of the season.
Forget plastic and polyurethane; the Aquatic WeedBlock®
is composed of
100% biodegradable materials. Not only is this
great news for Mother Earth, it’s great news for you. Gone are
the days when you needed to drag out heavy, slimy bottom screens
after just a couple of months. The Aquatic WeedBlock®
will decompose naturally, working over a longer time period,
without the need for disposal!
The Aquatic WeedBlock® works naturally to prevent and
suppress lake bottom weeds. Similar to other bottom screens, the
Aquatic WeedBlock® limits the amount of sunlight that
reaches the lake bed. Without the light, weeds can not flourish.
However, unlike other bottom screens, the weave of the material
we use allows aquatic organisms to find sustenance and reproduce
Even better; the Aquatic WeedBlock® is a complete system.
No more running
out for rebar or additional weights.
Biodegradable tubing is built into the Aquatic WeedBlock®
with a removable end cap, allowing you the flexibility to
purchase the system pre-weighted with sterile, unbleached sand
or empty, so you can save on shipping costs and fill them on
site. Either way, the system is very easy to install.
To maximize results, we recommend installing the system in early
Spring, before weeds are established. If installing the
Aquatic WeedBlock® on existing weeds,
we recommend cutting
them back and removing the debris before installation.
allow for more secure placement of the system to the lake bed.
Available complete, with sand (pre-filled and sealed in the
tubes) or without sand (save on shipping) :

If placing your
Aquatic WeedBlock® in shallow water where there’s frequent
turbulence (motor boats, strong underlying current, etc), we
suggest purchasing additional tubes to prevent the system from
shifting out of position. These tubes are 6’ long and include 2
end caps and biodegradable ties. They can be purchased
pre-filled with sand or without sand, so you can fill it on your
own and save a bit on shipping costs.
Additional Tubes (without sand): $9.95
