If you are noticing excessive water buildup around your lawn or the foundation of your home, AllScapes Ohio can solve this issue with an effective lawn drainage system. Water buildup can lead to roof leaks, mold and other forms of damage to the interior and exterior of your home. Therefore, implementing a lawn drainage system can save you thousands in the long run, especially with installation from the experts at AllScapes.
Another common issue with water buildup is an influx of more mosquitoes and other insects. Installing a backyard drainage system prevent water from pooling around your backyard, so mosquitoes and other pests leave your lawn alone and you can properly enjoy your backyard.
Here at AllScapes, we offer many lawn drainage system options:
- French Drains
- Lawn Grading
The French Drain lawn drainage system is the most common system and are very effective. French Drain systems involve creating a hidden path within your lawn, which transports the excess water and prevents pooling. Typically, the drain uses a perforated pipe surrounded by gravel. The French Drain is also wrapped in a filter fabric, preventing mud and other substances from entering the pipe.
French Drain systems are particularly valuable for properties with basement water issues. The drain directs water to a drain rather than allowing is to spread throughout the lawn and into your foundation, so your basement remains dry and is less vulnerable to water damage and mold. Furthermore, a professionally installed French Drain system will last for decades without maintenance.
Downspouts can act as a pivotal inclusion to your drainage system. They can prevent severe water damage in your home such as moisture buildup, mold, and corrosion. Also, they are similar to French Drain systems in that they collect water and move it away the foundation of your home.
Downspouts are proficient at preventing both flooding in your basement as well as buildup on your roof. This is crucial for stopping potential structural damage from water pooling in and around your home. Downspouts are also great for protecting your plants. However, a downside to downspouts relative to French Drains is the need for continuous maintenance. Furthermore, if not professionally installed, downspouts can clog and cause damage to your home. Therefore, we recommend hiring professional yard drainage system installers from AllScapes to get the job done right.
Lawn grading is yet another effective lawn drainage system. Grading your lawn involves the leveling or smoothing of your lawn so incoming rain will immediately flow out of your lawn and away from your home’s foundation.
