Certified Natural Shoreline Professional Training Manual

Traditional lakefront landscaping, with lawn to the water’s edge, creates problems for the lake ecosystem and waterfront owners. Rainwater carries lawn fertilizer, pet waste, leaves and grass clippings into the lake, adding nutrients that result in algal blooms. Shallow-rooted turf allows the shoreline to easily erode, causing the loss of property. It also attracts nuisance waterfowl such as geese.
