Any of these problems can be the cause of a landscape drainage issue:
- Low Areas always holding water
- Constant wash out in the same area
- Don’t have 4″ to 6″ of exposed foundation
- Bad smells caused by standing water
- Poorly graded property
Some of the most common solutions to landscape drainage problems are:
French Drain Installation
Must be installed in the correct location to collect the water from the surface into a 12″ x 18″ trench with perforated pipe and gravel. The gravel can be exposed on the surface or wrapped with a fabric and covered with soil and grass. 6″ to 18″ catch basins can also be installed to assist in the water intake. The drain will have an outlet in a lower location or in an underground tank.
Used to capture water in a certain area and relocate it off the property or to a desired location using solid or perforated pvc or tubing
We may be able to cut away or add to the existing soil to improve the drainage. This can be accomplished by hand work or machinery if the property allows for it.
Can be used to hold back soil to improve the drainage on the lower side or to deflect the water away from the desired area and direct it to another. Various stone or brick materials can be used to create a beautiful wall that also does the job.
