Professional Drainage Solutions
Renovating your landscape can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. However, it’s important to know that your work doesn’t end with just planting new foliage and installing hardscaping. Efficient drainage is a critical aspect of your landscape renovation project. Without proper drainage, all your hard work and investment can go to waste as heavy rain can easily cause flooding and damage your property. In this blog post, we will guide you through the different drainage considerations and factors for your landscape renovation project.
One of the most common mistakes that homeowners make when it comes to drainage is not considering the land’s natural grade. The slope of your property significantly affects the water flow on your lawn. During your landscape renovation project, ensure that the slope is away from your home’s foundation, and towards a catch basin system or another appropriate outlet to prevent water accumulation and damage.
When installing drainage systems around your landscape, it’s essential to choose the right type of pipes. While locally perforated pipe type installations may seem like a good fit, they tend to have a shorter lifespan, mainly due to silt and debris buildup. Instead, we recommend opting for a catch basin system that collects water from areas where flooding is likely to occur, then redirects it towards a proper outlet.
Another thing to consider when designing your drainage system is where all the drainage will lead to. You don’t want to redirect water flow towards your neighbor’s property. Ensure that you have permission from your neighbor before directing the water flow towards their property.
When it comes to maintaining your drainage system, it’s essential to have “cleanouts.” A “sweep” or “T” inlet placed near the highest point of your drainage system will make it easy to clean out any buildup of silt or debris. Our team can help you identify the best locations for cleanouts and provide you with the right maintenance tips to ensure that your drainage system remains efficient.
A well-designed drainage system is crucial to ensure that your landscape renovation project doesn’t result in potential damage to your property.
