We’re really not kidding when we say you can beautify your property while correcting drainage problems. Landscape drainage technology has come a long way in the last five years. Actually, it can even help improve the value of your property.

But not all landscape drainage solutions are going to be beautiful. It all depends on your specific problem. For instance…

Does Your Driveway Flood?

Traditionally, driveway drainage is handled by a trench or channel drain, and that’s a valid means to route stormwater.

But there’s a better way that’s more environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

Ever Heard of a Permeable Driveway?

You can have a gorgeous stone driveway that allows water to drain right through it. This eliminates the need for unsightly drain grates along the perimeter.

Do You Have a Soggy, Wet Lawn?

Wet lawn in need of landscape drainage, westchester, NY We often find that wet lawn problems are mainly due to poor soil composition or grading issues.

But sometimes, a wet lawn can be a sign that you may be in need of septic system repair.

Water will take the path of least resistance. If the soil’s composition allows the water to move through it quickly, you’re in good shape.

However, if your yard is primarily clay soil, you’ll need some subsurface drainage work.

A French Drainage System Can Dry Your Wet Lawn

The weapon of choice to combat a soggy lawn is the french drain, also called a curtain drain. The severity of your problem will dictate how much trenching will be needed to move the water.

Here’s how it works…

After trenching the area, we install one or more perforated pipes surrounded by gravel.

Settling water collects in the pipe and is taken to a subsurface dry-well area or to a designated above-ground area that won’t impact your living space.

Foundation Drainage

Many wet basements are either caused by old nonfunctioning gutters, clogged footing (foundation) drains, or both.

If we come across a wet basement or a drainage problem, we will try to address it on the outside before the water makes it into the house.

If the site allows, we will open up the foundation and do an inspection of the structure and drainage. We’ll patch any holes or cracks in the foundation. Apply a tar coating and membrane cover.

Before we backfill, we’ll replace the footing drains and run separate drains for the gutters. Footing drains, and gutter drains should always be separate, so one does not overload the other and contaminate the other (i.e., leaves from the gutters can clog up the footing drains.)
