Hey guys, I'm bidding on an HOA that has a large lake that is fed by a stream and they have a set of specs on the requirement list that I want to run by you. I know the lady that wrote these, and she knows nothing about landscaping, so I'm sure these are way off. Let me preface this by saying the current landscape company is terrible and their contract is being terminated this month. The home owners just want to lake to be clean of debris (leaves) and they have had an algae problem in the summer months in the shallow areas. they have Israeli carp and probably some other random fish. "Lake/Canal: Chemical application (weekly) Cleaning canal (weekly) Removing debris and trash from garbage can at north end of canal (weekly) Cleaning south end of lake (weekly) Cleaning out debris in overflow hole (weekly) Removal of all leaves, limbs, debris and trash (weekly) Weeding of lake walls (monthly)" I doubt a once a week treatment on the lake is anywhere near acceptable, seems like chemical overload to me. If you go to: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=...ayer=c&cbll=32.914323,-96.798597&cbp=1,0,,0,5 and it switch to satellite view, it is the lake and stream that is in between the streets vendome pl and elysian ct.
