Issue

Undesirable vegetation

There is a growth of undesirable vegetation in or near the water course

An excess of water vegetation requires often mowing, which is negative for the underwater life. Futhermore, the water vegetation obstructs the supply and discharge of water.

Solution

Creating shade

Shade is created on the water by placing trees and shrubs next to the water course. Due to the absence of light, the growth of unwanted vegetation in the water course decreases.
