Do I Need a Landscape Drainage System?

It’s not always obvious when you’re having a problem with your yard drainage, but here are some subtle signs you may be:

  • Yellowing or drooping plants
  • Unusual pools of water
  • Eroding soil
  • Exposed roots

The Importance of Yard Drainage

Insufficient drainage can wreak havoc on your property. Here are just some of the damaging effects of poor landscape drains:

  • Flooding: Though obvious, we list it here because flooding can be dramatically sudden. The combination of a malfunctioning drain system and heavy rainfall can cause a major issue in as little as a few hours.
  • Mosquitoes: Standing water can serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes — and once they find a single area, they can spread throughout an entire property. Excess moisture can also attract other types of lawn pests.
  • Soil erosion: If you’re not using the correct type of yard drain on your property, the soil that makes up the foundation of your landscaping may start to erode.
  • Plant death: This is possibly one of the worst types of damage from bad drainage because it’s totally preventable. When plant roots sit in water, they develop “root rot”, a fungus that blackens and kills the plant from underground. It’s a common problem with water-logged landscapes.

Your commercial property may require a french drain, which will help leach out water from areas on the ground that are consistently wet. Another option would be to use a solid pipe, which would redirect water away from areas where water is accumulating. Sometimes, drainage issues can be solved through hardscaping. No matter the issue, our skilled technicians will perform a thorough analysis and recommend your best options for you.
