Why Drainage Matters

Effective drainage is crucial for a healthy lawn and a safe home. Standing water can lead to a number of issues, including:

  • Mosquito breeding grounds
  • Unusable yard space
  • Damaged foundation
  • Mold growth

Yard Drainage Issues

There are so many issues that can occur when your yard isn’t draining properly. Over the years, we’ve seen them all—from the minor (but still frustrating) problems to the serious (and costly) ones.

Here are some of the most common issues we’ve seen as a result of improper yard drainage.

  • Mower ruts: When the yard is always soggy, but you still have to mow, it’s ultimately going to leave ruts.
  • Muddy tracks: Whether it’s the dog or the kids, muddy prints keep making it onto your hardscaping, and even worse, into your home.
  • Plant bed erosion: Every time there’s a heavy rain, the plant beds get completely washed out.
  • Hardscaping floods: Water that isn’t properly directed may be washing over your walkways or patio and leaving a muddy mess that has to be power washed after every storm.
  • Pooling water: Improper grading of a patio and no drainage solution below may lead to a patio that forms a little “pond” with each rainstorm. This can happen in the yard, too. Any stagnant water like this is an invitation for mosquito breeding.
  • An unusable yard: When your yard turns into a swamp, it may become completely useless to your family and friends.
  • Water in the basement: Every home owner’s nightmare is that improper yard drainage will ultimately lead to water ending up in the basement. Unfortunately, we’ve seen it happen.

Our Services

We offer a comprehensive range of backyard drainage services, including:

  • French Drains: Ideal for directing water away from your home and preventing waterlogged yards.
