Managing large lily pad muck island areas.

Asked June 23, 2016, 3:20 PM EDT

How to manage these muck island areas and install a temporary pier and access for fishing and non-motor boating? Also, what are your thoughts on the weed razor rake? Thank you in advance for your time. Mary

Mary,
The weed razor is going to be a helpful tool in removing lily pads and any large weeds. Are you planning on treating with an herbicide to kill them before you weed? This may make removal a little easier as these plants tend to be very strong. It depends on how thick the area is with lilypad growth and if you want to permanently remove them or just cut them back.
