Your yard can be an enjoyable place for recreation, just like your home. But without proper grading to direct rainwater away from the home, flooding can result and leaks made worse. Standing water can cause yard areas to be unusable, negatively affect vegetation or even lead to mosquito problems. On the other hand, concentration of water on unprotected surfaces can cause erosion problems.
Drainage Solutions has years of experience in installation of a variety of drainage systems to solve various problems. Flat wet yard areas can be often be greatly improved by the use of exterior French drains, which may be turf covered or surfaced with stone to appear as dry stream beds and without requiring major regrading. French Drains are also very effective for diverting flows such as from a neighboring property. One of the most important things you can do to protect your home is to assure the rainwater is directed away from the foundation and where surface slope is insufficient or could lead to erosion, downspout extensions may be the solution. Patios and driveways and other hard surfaces sometimes require channel drains to capture flow from these impervious areas or move water from one side to another, and direct to safe outlets.
Concentrated flows or drainage on steep slopes requires that the surface be adequately protected. This might be as simple as ground cover plantings or reinforced turf in minor situations or stone lining of channels in more extreme situations. Small stream banks may require vegetative and/or mechanical stabilization. Swales (small shallow sloped ditches) are often useful to capture and direct flow. Drainage Solutions has experience with all of these systems and can develop a program for cost effective drainage improvements for your yard. Drainage Solutions designers have also designed some unique custom drainage systems for unusual situations and always keep aesthetics as an important factor in design.
