Damage Prevention

Common Landscape Drainage Problems and Solutions

Drainage problems should be addressed as soon as they are discovered to minimize the damage. Letting water pool in your backyard or having a home that sits at the bottom of a hill or slope can cost you a lot of money in damage. Look out for these common issues:

Low Spots

Uneven or improper grading can cause depressions or low areas in your yard where water collects during periods of rainfall or melting snow. Over time, this standing water can kill the grass and leave the ground spongy. Regrading the area or installing a stream bed can effectively redirect the water and restore proper drainage to your landscape.

Improper Plant Bed Design

Plant beds add color and visual interest to any landscape design, but if they are engineered incorrectly, water may sit in the plant beds or move toward your home, causing damage to the plants or your foundation. The skilled professionals at Lawrence Landscape will ensure your flower beds are properly graded to maximize water drainage and plant growth.

Gutter & Downspout Maintenance & Design

Clogged, broken, or improperly sized gutters can allow concentrated amounts of water to overflow onto plant beds or hardscaping. Leaky or poorly situated downspouts can have a similar effect and should be redirected or replaced as needed.

Slope Toward the Foundation

Water should flow away from your home’s foundation (rather than toward it) in order to prevent deterioration of the foundation surface and to stop water from entering your living space. In addition to regrading, a French drain can be installed around the perimeter of your home to lead the water away before it can cause damage.

Hardscape Surfaces

Solid surfaces such as sidewalks, patios, and driveways also need adequate drainage to prevent pooling. Surface drains or regrading can help to solve these issues.

SUPERB job by the Lawrence Landscape crew. Frank and his team were tasked with widening a dry rock creek bed, removing sod, putting down landscape fabric, and adding rock. The 3 man crew was skilled, fast, professional and did a great job. In and out in about 2 1-2 hours. Can’t say enough about how they made a messy job look easy. I’ll be using them again.
