Landscape Drainage Contractors
Having an attractive and healthy yard can be a very hard task to achieve and maintain. Aside from plants that look good and can thrive in your lawn, you must have a design that is as functional as it is beautiful. After all, a yard without the right support won’t last very long.
Proper drainage and irrigation can be hard to accomplish especially in such a flat region like Central Ohio. Around Columbus, we don’t have the large hilly regions that help with drainage. Because of this, we have to consider how water will drain for each individual project. One yard may drain in a completely different way from a neighboring yard.
Because there are so many varying needs for drainage, there are also many different ways to drain your yard.
- Ditch and Slope Drains. By digging slopes and ditches into the perimeter of yards, homeowners can create a simple and effective way for their yards to drain. These drainage systems can also be landscaped over to create a seamless and beautiful lawn.
- French Drains. These drains are essentially perforated drainpipes that run under grass, flowerbeds, or other types of landscaping to create a hidden system of drainage for the entire yard.
- Channel Drains. Usually located between buildings or other structures like decks, channel drains are an effective way to drain water from nearly any area. For channel drains, water typically goes through a grate before it enters the pipe system.
- Deck Drains. Because they have ornamental covers made of metal, stone, or some other material, deck drains are very popular with homeowners concerned with the overall look of their lawns. Placed at the bottom of slopes, water naturally drains through them.
- Catch Drains. These drains are attached to a home’s gutter system which carries the water from the gutters to a basin and then into an underground drainage system. The longer route means that water will have a smaller chance of reaching the home’s foundation.
Drainage systems are an integral facet to any home or lawn’s overall stability. If your lawn could benefit from landscaping drainage, give us a call today.
