Welcome to ILM Environments

Trusted Care of Land and Water. Simply stated, we aim to leave each place we visit better than we found it. Be it a pond, lake, stream, wetland, woodland or prairie – we provide the ecological skill and expertise needed to care for each place holistically. The result is that the water, land, wildlife and the way people interact with the place are all enhanced.


ILM has a full range of ecological services to help our clients achieve their goals. We approach each new client relationship or assignment by discussing their objectives and assessing the current ecosystem conditions. Then we deploy the right combination of services to produce the desired results.

Lake Management


Introducing D.A.S.H.

D.A.S.H. stands for Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting. This manual process is an immediate solution for aquatic plant control.

Ecological Areas

We restore natural areas, including land, water, and all the spaces in between such as wetlands and shorelines. Our specialty equipment allows us to access difficult-to-reach places and our Diver Assisted Suction Harvesting (DASH) program takes us underwater to manually remove those pesky aquatic weeds without using chemicals. Restoring stormwater conveyances and basins, repairing culverts, and addressing your flooding issues are a sweet spot for us, too. We work in diverse environments and offer a wide range of services. How can we help?


Lakes & Ponds

Healthy Natural



Community engagement and education are important to us, and ILM does a great job of keeping us informed about what they are doing and why they are doing it. We are consistently impressed with the knowledge, fairness, and accessibility of the ILM staff. Their professionalism and efforts to make sure they meet their clients’ expectations are unsurpassed. We look forward to many more years of partnership with ILM.
