The natural conditions determined the settlement economic activity. The grazing fields situated along the terrace, especially within the pond area have been populated by Transylvanian shepherds, who were here bringing the cattle for the winter stay. People inhabiting this area succeed in coping with the Baragan inclement climate presenting a Saharan feature during the summer and a Siberian one during winter, and facing also the history hostilities.

As for any other settlements located on the Borcea Branch, fishing meant a food but also an income source.

Within Vladeni many tools have been found (angling lines, harpoons, net weights) attesting an ancient and also stable inhabiting of the area. The settlement attesting document, lasting since the XV century, mentions this inhabitants occupation within the villages located on Borcea Branch.

Many sources mention the backwaters and ravines present in the pound area, the most important references addressing the Vladeni mountain lake, drained in 1951.

The villages located along the Ialomita Valley and Borcea Branch knew a long pasturing activity. The favourable climate, large grazing fields presented a real attraction for the Transylvanian shepherds, who in time settled here and developed permanent settlements.
