If your yard has drainage issues, you know how wet our rainy season can get. This build-up of excess water leads to huge puddles, waterlogged and ruined landscaping, and possibly even excess water that ends up in your basement. If this is happening, you may have a drainage problem, meaning your yard doesn’t drain the way it should. There are some great benefits to a professionally installed yard drainage system, and now is a great time to start planning for yours, before the rainy spring rolls around.
The most obvious benefit of a yard drainage system is that it allows you to control the excess water that comes with the rain. When we get heavy rains, the water only has so much it can do: soak into the ground, sit and collect in a pool, or run off (sometimes in a stream through your property). Sometimes that runoff even finds its way into your basement or other below-grade areas. The drainage system gives the water direction so that it flows where you want it to and doesn’t cause damage to your property.
Plants need water to survive, but there is such a thing as ‘too much of a good thing.’ Overwatering can kill your plants, and sitting in a huge puddle of rainwater that’s not draining from your landscape counts as overwatering. A drainage system will channel the excess water away from your plants so the roots don’t get saturated and your plants can stay healthy and beautiful.
Peace of Mind
The greatest benefit of a professional drainage system is the peace of mind that comes with knowing your water issues are all in the past. No more stress and worry about water in your basement, killing your plants, undermining your hardscaping or creating new streams across your lawn. You have better things to spend time maintaining, so let a new drainage system take this work off your hands.
