Drainage

Standing water can be not only a nuisance in the landscape but it can also be extremely damaging to property and sometimes even health. Whether it is ensuring proper slope on all the surfaces we install or installing a six foot deep french drain to pick up subsurface water leaking into your foundation, we take it seriously.

Generally, drainage can be summed up into two categories: surface and subsurface.

Surface drainage refers to the collection of water from hardscape and softscape. This usually involves proper slope and well sized and placed drains, sometimes downspouts are tied into these systems.

Subsurface drainage refers to the collection of water beneath the surface. This is usually the water that causes serious damage to homes in our area. Collection of this water is usually done by installing a smooth wall PVC drain pipe with tightly glued joints at a minimum of 2% slope. This means a two foot drop per 100 feet of pipe, usually resulting in a trench several feet deep.
