Keeping your yard and garden efficiently irrigated with proper drainage is not only good for the health and beauty of your landscaping, but it’s also good for your soil and the environment. There are a variety of landscape drainage options available to you, so your trusted irrigation professionals can help you find the perfect solution for your landscape. Without proper drainage, the water in your soil can overwhelm your sump pump or cause stubborn water damage in your basement. Whether you require a pipe system or can solve drainage issues by planting a rain garden will depend on your unique landscaping needs. Here are four great options for landscape drainage solutions.
Downspout Piping and Burial
If runoff from your roof is causing the majority of your drainage issues, downspout piping and burial can be an excellent solution for your home. This piping will divert roof runoff away from your home, helping you to avoid a wet basement.
Slope Your Landscape
While this solution isn’t for everyone, if you’re working on heavy-duty landscaping, it may be worth sloping your lawn away from your home. This can help you to avoid major buildup around your home’s foundation that can result in flooding.
Perforated pipes, also known as French drains, are a flexible solution that can meet many of your landscape drainage needs. These pipes are fully wrapped, covered with gravel, and topped with sod to ensure enough rainwater is being diverted away from your home. This can help you avoid putting unnecessary stress on your sump pump and stubborn cracks and leaks in your home’s foundation.
Rain gardens are a creative solution to landscape drainage issues that will not only divert rainwater but actually make the most of your rainwater and help your landscape to thrive. A rain garden is a shallow pool full of deep-rooted plants that can add beauty to your landscaping while managing groundwater drainage. It may sound too good to be true, but rain gardens are an excellent way to manage runoff from your roof, pavement, and driveway while improving soil health and adding plant life to your yard. They may look like a small pond after a storm, but do not hold water otherwise, instead of diverting it through your lawn in a naturally efficient method of landscape drainage, appearing as a normal garden in between rain storms!
