Drainage Solutions to Solve Your Water Problems
Water flows through the path of least resistance. Often, leading it away from your property or rerouting it to avoid certain areas doesn’t require more than guiding it where you want it to go. The trick is doing that tastefully and safely. Plus, some areas of the ground that are saturated with water and don’t drain well will always have standing water, so the challenge in those situations becomes offering relief to oversaturated ground. Here are a few ways we can help with drainage issues
If you have a sloped yard that leads towards your home, water will drain down the hill in the direction of your house. A retaining wall set back from the house will help prevent excess water from reaching the home. By slowing the flow, the wall gives the water a chance to soak into the ground before reaching the foundation.
Channel drains prevent puddles from forming around pools, driveways, and walkways. They are installed in the pavement or around the pavers and collect water before it pools on the surface, directing it to a drainage system.
These are a common choice to prevent water from entering basements. They are laid underground, deeper than the foundation, and as the water table rises, it enters the french drain and is funneled away through a pump, so it never has a chance to reach the foundation.
If you have water pooling in your yard, a catch basin placed in the low point will collect water where it can be redirected through pipe sloping away from the area.
A dry well is a vast container, usually about 50 gallons or so, placed underground that will hold water until it naturally seeps further into the ground. It collects the water similar to a catch basin but doesn't funnel it out to another area and instead relies on the natural absorption process.
