We contacted WLPR because cattails and reed canary grass had taken over our pond. Cory evaluated the situation and recommended a program of control we could do ourselves. What a difference! The water is so clear, we can see almost to the bottom. And, except for a little granular cutrine we have not had to use algaecide at all. The reed-canary grass is gone, and we are using Shore-Klear on the cattails now, hoping to greatly reduce their numbers by spring. Thank-you WLPR
