Are Your Gutters Ruining Your Lawn? Cumming, GA

If your gutters are not installed properly or incorrectly sized for your home, it can cause flooding on your lawn. Not only does flooding ruin your landscape, but it can also cause problems with the foundation of your home. Consider these budget-friendly water runoff solutions to protect your landscape investment from gutter problems:

Gutter Extensions
Rather than replace your entire gutter system, you may be able to effectively divert the flow by installing a drain pipe extension to your current gutters. These are easy to install and typically found at your local hardware store. You’ll first need to determine exactly where you want the water to flow. In most cases, adding a few feet to your downspout around problem areas (walkways, courtyard, etc) will do the trick.
Rain Chains
If you do not have a downspout or it isn’t working correctly, you may want to consider a rain chain to help control heavy amounts of rainwater. A rain chain is a series of decorative cups or bells that provide both aesthetics and purpose. Water must trickle through the chain elements as it falls from your roof, which reduces the amount of steady stream water that hits the ground.
Water Reservoir
Another option is to simply put a small reservoir under your downspout to collect the rainwater and prevent it from hitting the ground and damaging your lawn. If you want to be resourceful, use this collected water to water your garden in the future.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
