Drainage Work

Excess water can be as damaging to your landscape as the lack of water. Excess water can also lead to property damage, instability in your home’s foundation and costly repairs. Our water and drainage professionals offer a variety of methods to solve water problems and prevent them from occurring in the future.

Our drainage experts have extensive knowledge of grading and trenching techniques as well as the tools and technology needed to restructure your landscape and get rid of excess water. Solutions include downspouts or dry creek beds which can turn your water troubles into beautiful waterfalls and streams; diverting water runoff using systems such as French drains; and carefully-planned trenching designed to prevent water from collecting in your basement or settling in low areas.

We can also drain water away from your house or wet spot to another part of the yard that has more slope for the water to flow away from the property. Depending on the situation we may even be able to connect your drainage system directly to the storm drains.

Call us today and we will be glad to provide you with options from the most inexpensive low-tech solution to the most comprehensive and extensive solutions available. Remediation may include one or a combination of the following:

  • Collecting downspout water and piping it away from the house (sometimes downspouts dump too much water too close to the house)
  • French drain systems (from simple to complex, to gather and pipe away sub-surface water)
  • Drainage ditches and trenches
  • Driveway drains
  • Lawn drains
  • Catch basins
  • Culverts
  • Rain gardens (a detention basin designed to collect and hold run-off so it can soak in slowly and recharge a garden or forest soil)
  • Re-grading for proper pitch
  • Sump pumps
  • Swales
  • Water bars

We try to make as little a mess as possible and we always clean up before we leave. Depending on the severity of a problem, we sometimes have to use heavy equipment to get the job done. Because we are in the landscape business too, we are familiar with lawn restoration. We can re-seed or sod the area to make it look like we were never there.
