Causes and Solutions for Your Soggy Yard Cumming, GA

Are you forced to avoid your lawn after a hard rain due to soggy grass or standing water? You may have a drainage problem that needs to be addressed. Water that doesn’t get dispersed or can’t drain easily after a downpour can cause more than just an inconvenience. In fact, standing water on your lawn can contribute to mosquitos, turf disease and even damage to your home’s foundation. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we offer solutions to your drainage issues. To implement a successful fix however, we must first determine the cause of your soggy yard.

Why is Water Pooling on My Lawn?

The most common cause of standing water on your lawn is a sloped property or uneven grade. When sloped the wrong way, water can accumulate in the wrong places, including your home’s foundation. A prompt fix is important to avoid costly repairs.

Another culprit for a puddled lawn is your soil. When soil is too compacted, it is unable to properly absorb after a rainfall. This can lead to breeding mosquitos and other insects that can sabotage your outdoor fun.

How to We Prevent Standing Water

Don’t worry; there are some very effective drainage solutions for stagnant water in your yard. The following tactics can keep your lawn healthy and thriving by directing rainwater away from your prized turf:

  • Regrade your property (change the slope)
  • French Drains
  • Dry Creek Beds
  • Core Aeration (to eliminate compacted soil)

Ready to say goodbye to your lawn puddles? We can help. Call our Cumming lawn experts today to learn more about our affordable drainage solutions.

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!!
