Drainage Solutions

Whether you already have a drainage issue or are looking to avoid one down the line a variety of drainage solutions are available depending on your property conditions and your needs. The services listed below are generally completed as part of landscape project rather than just a drainage only project. That is, when planning your landscape project we take into account the current site conditions, as well as the proposed changes and examine how rainfall and other runoff water on your property will interact with your project.

Swales - A swale is a low tract of land in a landscape that naturally collects water. Swales are often designed to manage water runoff, filter pollutants, and increase rainwater infiltration.

French Drains - French drains are used to redirect water from an area. French drains are primarily used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging building foundations by either removing water from a collection point close to a building or stopping it before it gets to close to a building.

Dry Wells - Dry wells are underground structures that dispose of unwanted water, most commonly storm water runoff, by dissipating it into the ground, where it merges with the local groundwater. They are used on properties that don’t drain well naturally and as a result have a surplus of water.

Underground Gutter Piping - Gutters are great but what’s the point if the downspout just dumps the water right next to your foundation creating a puddle and the potential for a whole host of problems down the line, including potential water in your basement. Gutters can be piped away from your house and day lighted a safe distance from the building, deposited into a safe containment area underground, or even stored to be used to water your turf and plant materials.
