Controlling Cattails

Category : Pond

This pond had a thick layer of cattails surrounding the entire bank making the pond unusable. Removing this evasive weed can be hard as they are likely to grow back next year if you just cut them off or pull them by hand.

 

 

Dredging to increase the depth of the pond edge is the one of the most permanent solutions available.  Cattails are unlikely to grow back if the depth at the edge is greater than 18 inches.
