Outdoor Drainage Options
One way to address the problem of water drainage on your property is to install a drainage system. There are a number of different types available, and the best option for your property will depend on a number of factors including the aesthetic you’re seeking, the size and layout of your property, the amount of rainfall you receive, and your budget. A drainage solution can be as simple as a series of trenches that channel water away from your home, or it can be a more complex system of pipes and catch basins.
Some common options to choose from include:
French Drains: Commonly used to route water away from gardens and foundations, French drains work to prevent too much moisture seepage in your yard. They allow you to redirect water where you’d like it to flow and make for practical yet beautiful hardscaping.
Dry Creek Beds: A non-organic landscape feature, dry creek beds mimic natural creeks when there is excess rainwater. These types follow the same direction of water flow rather than redirecting and are sometimes used just for looks.
Channel Drains: A more inconspicuous drain option, channel drains are useful for driveways, walkways, pool decks, parking lots, etc. They are a great solution for properties that are negatively sloped and prone to flooding.
Downspout Drains: Rather than drainage that’s located further out on your property, downspout drains attach to your gutters to help water flow into the ground without dripping down the side of the structure.
Of course, you can mix and match types of drainage to find the perfect balance of water control. If you’re not sure where to start or which drain would work best for your lawn, give us a call. We’re happy to discuss your situation, answer any questions, and offer advice. Before any work begins, we start with a complimentary consultation.
