The importance of proper yard drainage
With the start of the rainy season every year, it is vital to ensure that your yard drainage system is up to scratch. Any existing issues that you have with your yard drainage will be exasperated, with heavy rainfall. A good drainage system may not be as attractive as a landscape design, but it is one of the most vital parts of ensuring your landscape's beauty is there to stay. Failing to remain on top of your drainage system will result in erosion. Heavy rainfall can cause soil to run off in your yard. If your drainage system is not up to par, this will quite literally take off with your landscape. Erosion will not only decrease the aesthetic appeal of your landscape but the value of your property too. Structural damage is one of the most costly repairs to have to make. A bad drainage system can cause your foundation to shift or sink, which not only can create an unsafe environment but expensive home renovations.
Water will naturally run towards a downhill where it can easily move down a slope. The ground around your home or building always needs to have a slope that directs away from the property. Sometimes this is not the case. The soil surface can be above your property and in this case grading is required. Our trained contractors will ensure that we work with your yard to slope the soil away from your home and create that natural slope that is vital in yard drainage.
Yard Drainage Solutions
If you have water flooding your yard, do not panic! There is always a solution for you. Topography is one of the first things that should come to your mind. A property with good yard drainage will gently slope away from the property to promote the water to move in this direction. If your home is not built this way and you find your home is sitting lower than your neighbor's home, then a re-grading can be done to fix this. If your yard has nowhere that the water can be drained then a dry well can be installed, this is a holding tank for excess runoff. During a storm, it will fill and then slowly drain the stormwater. Regardless of your problem, Virginia Beach Drain Pro has a solution.
