Soggy Grass? Waterlogged Plants? Cumming, GA

Poor drainage in your yard can wreak havoc on the health of your landscape. In fact, your grass and plants can die just as fast with too much water as they can from drying out. If you notice consistent soggy spots on your turf or wet soil in a flowerbed even when the rest of your landscape has dried out, it may be time to invest in some drainage solutions.

Drainage solutions can be a simple, budget-friendly fix or a more invasive and costly remedy. This largely depends on what is causing your poor drainage problem. Here is your best and worse case scenario:

Is it the soil?
There are times when your dying or waterlogged plants are suffering due to poor drainage in your soil. If it is an isolated problem within the soil, there are easy ways to improve your soil’s structure. Solutions may include minimizing soil tillage, adding peat or compost or adding sand, porous ceramic or expanded shale.
Is it grading deficiency?
Your drainage problem may involve a more complicated fix. Poor drainage can result from grading deficiencies or when your yard has a bad slope that allows standing water to accumulate during a heavy rain. Soil grading and surface grading may be your best and most effective solution. You may consider a subsurface drain if you are not willing to undergo surface grading, and this can provide some help. However, surface grading, although disruptive to your landscape at the time, can offer the most long-lasting remedy to your drainage problem. This will level your property site in a way that directs water to a drainage ditch, catch basin or dry well.

At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we can handle your drainage problems. We want to help your plants, flowers and shrubs thrive – even during a rainy season. Schedule your consult today and we can determine which type of drainage solution your landscape needs to stay healthy.

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!!
