THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF YARD DRAINAGE THAT WE DEAL WITH:
1. Flat areas in the yard that do not drain properly. We generally recommend that you install a FRENCH DRAIN for this type of water issue.
If you have an area(s) in your yard that holds water for many days after a rain, you may opt to install a French drain. A French drain is a trench that is dug in the middle of the wet area and filled with a perforated drain tile & gravel. The concept is to create a “sponge” that can soak up the water and take it to a different place in your yard or backyard that does have the proper slope. In some cases, we can install a “catch basin” in the wettest areas to allow for the water to enter the French drain from the surface.
2. Gutter Downspouts that should be extended to get water away from the home.
