Drainage Solutions from Conserva Irrigation

French Drains, Channel Drains, & More

Have you noticed pools of water or spongy ground on your property? Water pooling in your yard is a recipe for disaster. It’ll wreak havoc on your grass, landscaping, cause unwanted bugs, and increase mold and fungus. Luckily, Conserva Irrigation offers full-service drainage solutions to prevent any excess water pooling.

Drainage solutions are not one size fits all. Choosing what is right for you first depends on your property and your particular concerns. One of our trained team members will assess your property and discuss what you experience at times of high rain and your goals for the project. From there, we’ll recommend the best solution for you.

Types of Drainage Solutions

  • French drains. Distinguishable by their drain tile, French drains are trenches covered by rock that leads water into a pipe. Once in the pipe, water is redirected to a more desirable location.
  • Dry Creek Beds. Aesthetically pleasing and effective, dry creek beds are a great solution for properties with shaded areas and little slope. They are able to move a large amount of water, cut down on erosion, and prevent too much soil movement. Design options range from simple to elaborate making them a statement piece for some landscapes.
  • Channel Drains. Commonly used to keep hardscapes like driveways, patios, and pool decks free of standing water, channel drains include long grates that collect water and move it through underground trenches.
  • Downspout Drains. Downspouts are connected to your gutter system and are designed to move water away from the house. Depending on the grade of your property, you may need more than the typical downspout. Extensions or underground drain lines may be necessary to prevent pooling water.

It’s important to note that drainage work requires significant work to your property. The ground will need to be dug up for trenching to be properly installed to fix the problem. After Conserva’s work is done, additional landscaping (by a third-party landscaper) may need to be completed to get your property looking like new.
