Signs of Yard Drainage Problems
- Standing water or puddles in the landscape or lawn
- Plants may yellow, wilt or appear unhealthy
- Yellow grass or patches of unhealthy turf
- More pests than is common for the area
Proper drainage of your yard keeps it healthy and beautiful without the worry of low spots, flooding, or damage to your home or other structures. With poor drainage, excess water from irrigation systems or rainfall cannot properly run off the lawn and landscape, and instead will collect or seep into the soil.
Excess water can also drown and damage turf and landscape plants and attract pests to your yard, creating the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. If not resolved, a yard drainage problem can result in serious damage to the landscape, underground pipes, and your home’s foundation.
Reliable Basement Services installs many types of drainage systems, including French drains, channel drains, burying gutter downspouts, sump pump discharges, and dry wells. Draining excess water from your yard not only protects your home’s foundation and landscape investment but also keeps it safe from unwanted mold or fungus growth.
