It can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening to see your landscape washed away every time it rains.

Many homeowners are unaware that they have problems with drainage in their landscape. For that reason, keep reading and discover a few signs that you have a drainage problem in your yard.

Your Grass Isn’t Growing

Too much water can drown the grass in your yard. When you have an excess of water on your lawn, it will inhibit the grass from taking in enough oxygen.  If you are among the countless homeowners who may be puzzled by bare patches throughout your yard, it may be because you have inadequate drainage.

You Have Water In Your Basement

Water can be quite destructive if it gets into your home. If you are noticing that your basement is damp or that you have leaks down there, it may mean that rainwater is not draining correctly. It is also essential to be on the lookout for water stains, as they are another sign that water is not draining sufficiently.

Standing Water

If you have several pools of standing water on your landscape, it is probably because you have a drainage problem. Most residential properties will have their share of puddles after it rains; however, if those puddles hang around for a while, it likely means you have drainage issues.
