Jenny the weed harvester has recently completed her annual visit to Theale Business Park, clearing the excess aquatic vegetation from the business park lake.

Maintaining the lake on an annual basis is important for sustaining a healthy plant community. Without the regular maintenance, the weed growth in the lake would sink to the bottom and decay. From the luxurious weed growth that Theale experiences, low dissolved oxygen levels are likely once the weed begins to break down. To prevent this and to protect the fish stocks, we cut and remove the weed from the lake at the end of each year.

Kingcombe also visits the park monthly, maintaining the water features by carrying out mechanical and electrical tests for safety, and cutting back the vegetation where required. Regular maintenance in this area is vital, ensuring the vegetation growth is controlled and the water features kept in pristine condition.
