One of the most important parts of the landscape design, installation, and maintenance process is maintaining the proper drainage in your yard. Improper drainage can lead to major structural damage on the inside of your home and ruin the gorgeous landscaping on the outside. Whether you are taking advantage of our comprehensive landscaping services or installing a new deck, we can perform landscape drainage services on your property to ensure that water ends up only where it should.
Improper Landscape Drainage
If the drainage in your yard is insufficient or non-existent, your entire property will suffer. Pools of water in your landscape can damage trees and roots, attract pests and mosquitos to your backyard, and cause soil erosion. Water pools near your home’s foundation will eventually cause water and structural damage. Once water damage occurs, mold can develop on your property and require expensive remediation. Landscape drainage is always a part of our landscape designs and landscape architecture plans.
Landscape Drainage Solutions
At Carroll Landscape, we offer various proven and efficient drainage solutions. Our most popular landscape drainage solutions include:
Grass Channel Swales
Swales are designed as part of your lawn to subtly direct water away from your foundation, thanks to careful grading. Grass channel swales do not need much space or incline to be effective, so they work well for many yards.
Dry wells are environmentally friendly and get rid of excess water by redirecting it to an underground well. Over time, the water will leave the well and filter into the groundwater tables. Dry wells are also a great alternative to French drains.
French drains are a traditional solution for an assortment of drainage woes. French drains can be designed to complement many different landscapes and direct excess water into a drain instead of distributing it throughout your property.
Proper Landscape Drainage Means Healthier Plants
In addition to protecting your home, landscape drainage prevents damage to your landscape and makes your plants healthier. Handling water drainage issues improves plant health. Water pools in a specific area, like the bottom of a hill, when it rains. That water pooling leads to grass and plants becoming overwatered and effectively drowning. Plus, overwatered landscapes tend to attract mosquitos and other pests.
