  • Prevents Soil Erosion: Soil erosion can occur when heavy rain drops too much water that your lawn cannot handle on its own. The water will forcibly remove soil from parts of your lawn. This can be damaging to your landscaping and even your home’s foundation. Drainage alleviates the concern of too much water and soil erosion for a property.
  • Protects Your Home from Water Damage: If water has no place to go, it will make its way toward your home. It can cause foundation cracks, mold, mildew, and water damage throughout your property. Drainage will keep water away from your home, shielding it from potential damage.
  • Prevents Standing Water: Standing water is never a good thing for any property. It can become a breeding ground for pests, attract local wildlife, and damage your lawn. It can also cause surfaces to become slippery and a safety concern to walk on. Installing a drainage system helps keep water from pooling on the surface.
  • Curb Appeal: A landscape that has too much water can look like a swampy mud pit. This is very unattractive and poses many issues. You can constantly track mud into your home, your landscape may be barren, mushy, and visually unappealing.


Wet pools of standing water in your yard are a nuisance, a hindrance, and an eyesore. It brings down your property value and damages your plants. You won’t be able to mow or cultivate over wet areas and if the wet patches produce mud, it can be tracked into the house. There are many ways that we can address or prevent drainage issues in your yard; here are some of the most common drainage solution strategies:

  • Make a Plan: There are many ways to resolve drainage issues; the solution for you will depend on the size of the affected area, its location, and your property’s layout. You might even need a combination of drainage solutions depending on the issue.
  • Creek Beds: Creek beds are designed to channel water away from low spots into a dry well or a rain garden. With the right landscaping, even a dry creek bed can look good at all times; you can even incorporate it into your landscaping so it becomes an attractive fixture!
  • Rain Gardens: If you have a low spot in your yard that tends to collect standing water, consider replacing the existing plants with water-loving plants. It doesn’t exactly remove the moisture from your yard, but it will look better and be easier to maintain than muddy sinkholes. You can also choose to add alternate drainage solutions and use a rain garden to hold excess water until it has a chance to drain.
  • Pipes: There are many ways to use underground pipes to facilitate drainage in your garden. Underground drainage pipes funnel water away from the area in which it collects, while a French drain disperses drained water over a large area. The specific setup you choose will depend on your yard’s arrangement.
