Before you install a plant or lawn or build a wall you need to assess the drainage throughout the site. Most sites need some kind of drainage. Every landscape project changes the flow pattern of excess water from irrigation and rainfall. A proper drainage system can protect the homeowner's significant investment in their home and landscape.
When assessing the yard there are (5) five areas that should be looked at:
Excess water around the home cracks and damages the foundation and basement walls.
Catch basins and grates remove water from downspouts to protect your home's foundation and basement walls.
Excess water can drown plants, destroying your landscape investment.
Water from driveways, walks or patios can enter garage and home and cause a slippery area when wet.
Channel drains and grates remove sheets of water moving across the surface of driveways, sidewalks and patios. This will prevent the water from entering into the home.
Puddles in the yard create muddy feet for pets and guests, tracking debris into the home. Puddles are also a breeding area for mosquitoes and other insects.
NDS has a solution with a new product called the Flo-Well® which will eliminate puddles and mud by safely infiltrating the water into the ground.
Another option is to install pop-up emitters that would be at the end of the line, which would allow the water to disperse into the street.
Why install Drainage?
- Drainage protects the homeowner's property from water damage.
Most houses have common drainage problems, such as water coming into the basement or behind the siding of the home. Water and mold can ruin the home.
- Installation of a drainage system is very simple and easy.
For new construction you are already digging and working with the soil. Take advantage of installing before you make any future costly mistakes. Once you have determined what drainage system you need to use then dig away and connect the pieces together.
