With all of the rain during the final week of May, now is a good time to consider the future of your landscape in any kind of summer weather. While snow and extreme temperatures are known to damage a landscape, rain can be just as destructive to your yard without the proper tools to drain excess water. For this reason, drainage systems crucial to outdoor landscape, as they help to drain excess water from your yard and prevent standing water buildup from harming your trees and home foundation over time. If you recently invested in a landscape design, consider these three reasons to add a drainage system to your summer landscape today.

Save Your Home Water Damage

A drainage system is necessary for protecting the foundation of your home from structural damage caused by flooding and leaking in your basement. Water damage is especially dangerous, not only because of the physical damage causes to your home over time, but also because of the mold that grows in your home as a result of the moisture. With this precautionary measure, you can greatly reduce your risk of basement flooding and mold by allowing your drainage system to effectively keep rain outside and away from your home foundation.

Preserve Your Landscape Design

While flowers and trees may be some of the most important visual elements of your landscape, they are also important financial investments for the curb appeal of your home and your property. Protect your landscape design from flooding and water damage that can uproot and shift your landscape by adding a drainage system to rid your yard of excess water throughout the rainy days of summer months.

Eliminate or Reduce Expensive Repair Costs

If flooding has damaged your landscape or home foundation, repairs can be costly and stressful to your financial situation. Prevent further water damage to your home and landscape by reducing the potential for flooding on your property. This will allow you and your family to enjoy your outdoor space comfortably and stress-free in the months ahead.
