Most home and business owners dismiss flooding on their properties as a mere seasonal nuisance, assuming that as long as the building remains dry, the surrounding pools of water will eventually work itself out. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, especially in yards with poor soil quality or low-grade pitch. When left untreated, yard floods can cause significant damage to your lawn, property structures, and may even impact your personal health.
If you’ve noticed pooling in your yard, a professional lawn drainage system can help. Investing in a professionally-installed lawn drainage system can:
Large pools of standing water create wet soil and grass. Over time, foot traffic on these overly wet areas may result in soil compaction, starving the dirt and root systems of the nutrients needed to thrive. A lawn drainage system effectively redirects pool moisture, preventing your yard from becoming oversaturated.
One common byproduct of too much moisture in your yard? Moss. Moss thrives in stagnant water and, once it takes root, can quickly overtake an entire lawn (and possibly the buildings around it). Maintaining proper moisture levels throughout your soil can reduce and prevent the appearance of moss and any of its other weedy brethren.
Improper drainage can have a potentially devastating effect on shrubs, grasses, and even certain trees. Large pools and puddles can collect at the base of these plants, depriving them of oxygen and eventually casing rot at the roots. Draining the pools can reverse existing damage and stimulate healthy growth throughout your yard.
Flooding on your property not only washes away mulch and wood chips but it can eventually wear away at various plantings and ornamental landscapes. Redistributing water protects your yard, beds, and gardens from erosion.
Many home and business owners with improper drainage eventually begin to notice the water channeling toward the building’s perimeter. When left untreated, these pools can wreak havoc on a home or office’s foundation. A professionally installed drainage system keeps the grounds around your building free from any unnecessary moisture.
Water damage to your property is not exclusive to your plants. Excessive moisture can quickly seep into your hardscapes, damaging driveways, pavers, and patios. Your system will reroute puddles to prevent cracks and deterioration on paved features.
Improper drainage can prove an irresistible beacon for mosquitoes. These blood-sucking pests love standing, stagnant water – it’s where they feed and nest. A professional lawn drainage solution removes their breeding ground, resulting in these parasites finding a new place to call home.
