Proper Drainage for Your Backyard

Drainage

It may not seem like the most pressing concern, but good drainage is a critical element in any successful landscape design.

Proper drainage of water is critical for your property.  Standing water can cause many issues not only for the ground, but also for any structures that the water is against, like a house foundation or the side of a shed.  Stagnant water can destroy the ground beneath and be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.  Many folks may not consider water drainage or waterproofing as the most pressing issue, but it is one that can actually lead to some of the most expensive repairs.  Read on for more information and if you need assistance with any drainage issues, contact us today at 410-442-2445.

Effects of Bad Drainage

Puddling of water on your lawn can lead to many issues in your yard:

  • Unsightly yellowing or reduced growth of your lawn.
  • Creating low spots in your yard, driveway, or walking paths.  Water can actually disrupt even, flat ground, so be sure to remedy this as soon as possible.
  • Drowning trees, shrubs, and flowers, these plants can quickly die out from too much water.
  • Among the most costly is flooding in your home.  Basement waterproofing can be one of the best investments you can make to illeviate any unforeseen or future drainage problems.
