Drainage Dilemmas Cumming, GA

You can have the most well-manicured and beautiful yard in the neighborhood, but if you have drainage problems, your perfect landscape won’t last long. Drainage issues are one of the most commonly overlooked landscaping design factors. Many homeowners and business owners attempt a breathtaking landscape design but forget to consider where excess water will drain. Poor drainage can lead to wilting plants and turf, unwanted standing water, displaced groundcover and even building damage. Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping has professionals that can handle mild to severe drainage problems.

If your yard has poor drainage, it could be as simple as regarding your terrain or you may need more advanced drainage solutions such as a retaining wall or French drain. The first step is to find the source of your excess water. This could be anything from a leaky pipe in your irrigation system to a steep sloping terrain in your landscape. Your solution will obviously depend on the source of your problem. Drainage systems are typically divided into three categories:

  • Surface: An example of surface drainage is the channel drain, which is typically used in paved areas that collect water. Surface drainage systems collect excess surface water from planter beds, window wells, and certain turf areas where water puddles. This type of system uses catch basins, which have a sump area to collect debris so that it does not clog the piping.
  • Sub-surface: This is an underground drainage solution that carries water away from low-lying areas and into the street or main drainage line. The French drain is the most popular form of sub-surface drainage system.
  • Downspout: A downspout is an excellent solution if you have problems with water collecting around the base of your house. They are extended through a connection to buried drainpipes, which effectively leads water away from your foundation.

Drainage problems can be very complex and many involve a number of contributing factors. It is best to hire a professional to thoroughly examine your property and present the most effective drainage solution for your specific yard. Investing in a drainage solution should be your first step in creating a beautiful and valuable landscape!

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!!
