Aquascapes of Central Florida
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
As I’ve promised from the previous post, let’s find out who is responsible for clearing the segment of Lake Butler near downtown Windermere and enabled us to have the view of that breath-taking sunset and the fact that there is actually a dock!
It is Aquascapes! Of course, we should not forget to thank the private owner of this property (who is now also able to enjoy the view of the sunset).
There are over 2,500 lakes in the four Central Florida counties (Lake, Osceola, Orange, and Polk), covering over 4,000 square miles or 7% of the total area of Florida. These beautiful lakes are the special natural resources of Florida that provides us with the wonderful environment for relaxation, recreation, and opportunities to be part of the Nature through observation of abundant wildlife. The adjacent marshes and swamps of Lake Butler Chain are homes to a great variety of wild animals, many of which are of endangered species.
The portion of the Lake Butler Chain that revealed our beautiful Windermere Sunset was cleared by Robert Williamson’s team of Aquascapes, www.Aquascapes.com, 407-694-1210. Mr. Williamson received his training and B.S. degree in Environmental Science from the Rollins College of Winter Park, FL. He had worked with/cleared lakes for Disney, Universal Studio, Seaworld before starting his own company, Aquascapes, about six years ago.
For those of you with lakefront properties, you may want to consider giving Mr. Robert Williamson a call (407-694-1210) to find out all of the services Aquascapes may provide, from assisting with permitting your lakeshore property through government agencies, clearing the invasive plants, to planning and planting native plants, maintaining and restoring lakefront property. I may not always be able to distinguish between native vs. non-native plants, but I can attest to the work speed of Aquascapes’ team. They are fast!
Lastly, I’ve always wondered about the difference between native vs. non-native plants: where do you draw the line? Do you go back 10, 100, or 1000 years…if you go back far enough, they were all non-natives, ….don’t you agree?
