Drainage and erosion are two very crucial issues that need to be address in the landscape field. Great drainage is crucial for the health of your house foundation and the health of your landscape. You always want to make sure that your address your house from the top to the bottom in that order.
We use retaining walls as a way to help drainage and erosion problems. Having a retaining wall in some cases help divert water and prevent flooding around the foundation of a house etc. Also having a retaining wall can help create a multi-layer look to a sloping back yard which will make it more aesthetically pleasing.
Erosion by definition- is the gradual destruction of something by natural forces (such as water, wind or natural pattern) the process by which something is eroded or worn away. This can be applicable in the residential or commercial landscape setting as well. Sometimes erosion problems can be a simple tweak as much as redirecting a pipe to a different location, or they can be as complex as installing an entire drainage system, but either way our staff we will come up with a great solutions to fix your drainage, erosion problems etc.
Starting with your gutters, you want to make sure that they are cleaned out on a regular basis or you have gutter guards installed over them to keep out trash and debris. From there you want to move to the downspouts and make sure that they are flowing away from the house foundation. Our staff ALWAYS recommend that you connect all downspouts (sometimes in multiple series) together and run them to a surface area where the water can be release in a non-damaging area on site. Also keep in mind that not one pipe size fits all. Our staff assesses each property to the fullest extent so that we can calculate the proper piping size for your application.
