THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES
In recent years we have reduced our standard operating chemicals across our cleaning, landscaping and engineering activities by 80%. We continue to look for ways to reduce this even further. We use a product that uses ionized water rather than chemicals to clean – if you consider that the standard offices would usually require around 40 chemicals to clean them this is a real innovation.
Algae growth can be a major issue in the maintenance of any lake - choking plant life and threatening wildlife. Rather than relying on the chemical options that many turn to, we use encysted bacteria to prevent algae forming dense masses in our lake.
We spray weeds with a Glyphosate (herbicide) weed killer, which doesn't represent a danger to humans or the environment; in fact its toxicity can be lower than that of coffee.
