A healthy lawn is vital to the beauty of your home. Not only does it provide a green space for outdoor activities, but it also helps to protect the home from soil erosion and runoff. However, a poorly drained lawn can quickly become waterlogged, causing the grass to die out, and similar for your trees and landscape plantings.
If you have a problem with water drainage on your property, there are a few things you can do to improve the situation. One option is to install an outdoor drainage solution, such as a French drain or catch basin. Alternatively, you can improve the drainage of your existing lawn with grading or top-dressing to remove any areas of standing water. With help from our drainage experts, you can have a healthy lawn that will be resistant to future water damage.
Whether water is pooling up each time after you run your irrigation system, or you are planning out the build of your dream outdoor living area and want to make sure it will drain properly, the team at Green Scapes can take on the task. Get started today by filling out our quote request form.
A French drain, also called a drain tile, is an underground drainage system used to remove excess water from an area. It is typically made up of a perforated pipe that is surrounded by clear rock. The pipe is installed in a trench that has been dug around the perimeter of the problem area. French drains are commonly used to improve yard drainage and prevent foundation problems. They’re effective at draining wet spots in your lawn, especially low lying areas and at the end of downspout extensions. French drains are also an effective way to manage water runoff and reduce pollution by sending excess water into the soil, a dry creek bed, rain garden or disbursement area instead of into storm drains.
Dry creek beds are a great way to improve the drainage in your yard and add some visual interest to your landscape. They are typically created by excavating a trench and lining it with rock (sometime a layer of poly similar to a decorative rock installation, depending on soil conditions). The trench is then filled with more rocks, leaving a small space in between for water to flow through. Dry creek beds can be used to redirect excess rainwater away from vulnerable areas of your yard, such as near your foundation. They can also be used to create a more natural look in your landscape. Dry creek beds can help to prevent flooding and soil erosion.
Catch basins are a type of drainage system that is used to collect and release water from an area. It is typically installed in low-lying areas, such as near gutters or downspouts. The catch basin is connected to a pipe, which carries the water away from the problem area. Catch basins are an effective way to improve the drainage of your yard and prevent flooding. However, in many instances the require some maintenance – the basin requires periodic cleaning to remove any debris to prevent the system from clogging.
