Drainage issues in your yard can be unsightly, but can also lead to many other problems. Erosion, turf disease and insect infestation also result from poor drainage and standing water.
Many homeowners here in the Midlands first became aware of drainage problems in their yards during the flood of 2015. Correcting these problems now can prevent more damage as the seasons change from spring and summer.
A French drain is one solution to consider. This redirects the water and distributes it to other areas for drainage. Standing water problems can also be managed with berms, underground wells, rain gardens or ponds. Adding soil amendments to compacted or clay soil is another way to improve drainage and growing conditions for your lawn.
A well thought out landscape plan will minimize potential problems caused by changes in the weather and provide your family with a beautiful outdoor living space to enjoy.
