Are you noticing signs of poor drainage around your home? Whether it is bare roots, soggy grass or migrating mulch, water that does not drain properly can destroy the appearance of your landscape as well as lead to some serious damage if left untreated.
The basic cause of drainage issues is simple: water is hindered from moving downhill. Since you can’t eliminate water from you landscape if you want to keep it alive, it becomes important to diagnose and remedy those areas in which water is getting stuck or hindered.
When diagnosing the cause of excess water on your property, consider the following common landscape drainage problems:
- Low Elevation at the Foundation
- Poorly Planned Plant Bed Designs
- Bad Grading and Water Traps
- Improper Slope on Paved/Hardscape Surfaces
- Wrong Gutter Spout Location
