Are you concerned that your landscape has a drainage problem? Many property owners are in the same boat. It is incredibly disheartening to see your landscaping efforts washed away every time it rains. Although life is dependent on water, it is also important to understand that it can be quite destructive. Here are a few major signs that you have drainage issues on your landscape.
You Have Standing Water
It is not uncommon for your lawn to remain wet a day or so after a rainstorm. However, if you have a significant amount of puddles or standing water, it likely means you have drainage problems. A rainstorm or hurricane can leave puddles of water all over your lawn. This can cause several issues such as insect infestations, mold growth, and foundational issues.
The Effects Of Standing Water
-Poor water drainage can drown grasses and plants
-Wet surfaces become slick and create safety hazards
-Pools of water can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes
Your Grass Is Not Growing
Grass needs oxygen in order to grow. When large pools of water continuously smother a lawn, the grass does not stand a chance. In many cases, bare spots on a lawn are there because they are areas that hold water. Grass can not grow when it is drowning in water
You Have Water In Your Basement
A flooded basement is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. This can cause all sorts of home and property damage. If water is finding its way into your basement after it rains, it could mean that you have inadequate drainage on your landscape. Also, be on the lookout for spots of gray or white on your basement walls. These deposits are leftover mineral deposits when water has evaporated.
