Drainage & Grading

Stop Basement and Yard Flooding for Good!

START OUTSIDE…. Do not put work into your Inside until you have made SURE you have done everything outside first!

Whether you are designing your dream landscape or just need to fix up an area, it is essential to include drainage in the discussion. When we come out during the initial consult, we will ask you questions about drainage. We will ask how long it has been an issue OR if it hasn’t, we will ask you what has been tried in order to fix it.

As far as drainage is concerned, we look at four (4) main factors that may be contributing:

Trees/Shrubs

Are trees/shrubs causing excess shade? Do they put excessive debris in gutters or on the ground? Are their roots causing issues with the grade?

Gutters and Downspouts

Are they the sufficient size? Do they get clogged often? Has there been damage to them? Do they need to be re-configured?

Grading

Are there low spots around the foundation or in the yard? Are you catching runoff from your neighbors? the road? Have drains failed?

Sump Pumps and Condensate Lines

Do you have a sump pump? How often does it run? Where does it discharge? Has it failed? Does your condensate line run into the sump pump or directly outside?

Sometimes there are several different solutions to a problem or problems. During the consultation we can discuss these with you along with their pros and cons.
