When the weatherman forecasts another rain shower in April, it is no surprise. We are living in Georgia’s rainiest months of the year. While there is nothing you can do about a rained-out baseball game, there are some steps you can take to protect your lawn from the extra precipitation during this season.
First and foremost, you need to make sure that water can easily leave your yard after a rain shower. If not, you can experience soggy areas in your turf as well as flooded flower beds and multiplying mosquitoes. Here are some ways to implement drainage solutions and protect your landscape despite the overload of spring showers:
- Install a French drain
- Level or re-grade your yard
- Create a dry creek bed
- Aerate your lawn
Knowing the cause of your poor drainage will help determine which solution is right for you. Whether you need to aerate due to compacted soil or install a French drain for a more permanent approach, we can handle your drainage needs at Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping.
Are you noticing signs of poor drainage in your yard after a rainstorm or heavy shower? This may include migrating or shifting mulch from your plants as well as puddles of water in your grass. To ensure your poor drainage doesn’t sabotage your blooming spring flowers this season, we recommend installing a drainage solution sooner rather than later. You’ll find our Cumming landscaping team to be highly knowledgeable and affordable when it comes to drainage. While irrigation and hydration is vital for your grass and plants, we can make sure your landscape doesn’t retain more water than it can handle.
