Every homeowner wants to ensure that they have attractive yards on their property. Even as you focus on getting your yard designed and installed in the manner you want, it is crucial that you have the right kind of drainage installation in place. Without the proper yard drains, a heavy downpour can cause considerable damage to your yard. If your property is situated at the base of slopes, there are greater chances of this happening. In fact, if the drainage system isn’t able to keep up, your basement may also get flooded.
The one way to prevent this from happening is to get your yard drains planned and installed when you are getting the landscaping work done. However, it’s not always possible to predict whether a specific area will get flooded and to what extent, unless you have actually lived in that house for some time.
Types of yard drains
All Aspects Waterproofing is a reputed company in this field. With over 30 years of experience behind us, we have the knowledge, expertise and the resources to provide excellent yard drains installations. There are a variety of drains that can be installed such as:
- French Drains– This is a very simple solution for yard flooding. We install these at different areas across your yard. A French drain is essentially a trench that’s dug into the soil to efficiently transport excess water away from your home.
- Dry Wells– We use these for yards with severe drainage issues. This is a well that holds excess water when there is flooding; the water then slowly seeps into the surrounding soil over a period of several days and prevents sudden flooding in other areas.
- Curtain Drains– These are ideal for removing water from the low-lying areas in your yard. We install this perforated drain pipe in the ground and then surround it with stones; this is covered with a special filter cloth used for landscaping purposes; the water that flows through gets redirected away from the yard. Since the drain is covered with gravel, it becomes much more accessible in case any blocks have to be removed or repairs have to be carried out.
