The Importance of Proper Drainage

Importance of Proper Drainage
Drainage is a fundamental concept in landscape design that plays a big part in protecting your home from potential water damage.

When you think about drains, you probably picture your shower or maybe the kitchen sink. After all, these drains are the ones you see on a daily basis. When working properly, drains keep water from building up around them. Drainage in your yard works similarly, it just looks a bit different. Water buildup on your property can lead to lots of expensive damage. Here are some of the reasons you will want to make sure your yard has plenty of drainage.

Soil Erosion Causes Damage

Without proper drainage, the structure of the soil can break down. This can cause the ground to become quite messy. It is also extremely difficult to plant a garden or add other design elements to your property if the soil around it is going to wash away. One of the most common ways to keep soil erosion at bay is with the use of retainng walls. If needed, drainage pipes can be built right into the retaining walls!

Lack of Drainage Can Affect Your Home

Poor drainage can lead to flooding in your basement, which can lead to some very costly property damage. By contacting the professionals at Atlantic Maintenance Group, you can help to prevent flooding before it starts. Our professional workers will assess your property and add the proper drainage wherever it is needed.

Flatten Out Hills and Slopes

If your home is at the top or bottom of a hill, or somewhere in the middle, drainage can become tricky. There are some resurfacing measures that may help. Soil can be added to certain areas to decrease the slope, and then a retaining wall can be built to ensure none of it washes away.
