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

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
