When you have dense soils which absorb a lot of moisture when it rains, such as clay varieties, or when you have an improperly graded terrain on your residential or commercial property, it will be important for you to have the right kind of landscaping drain installed. Without the right kind of system in place, water will build up in your existing landscaping, in giant puddles in low-lying areas, or it may accumulate next to your exterior walls and eventually make its way into your basement or crawl space environment. It can also be very dangerous to have standing water on your lawn or parking lot as this attracts unwanted pests, including mosquitoes.
Warning Signs of a Problem
- Noticeable erosion can be seen throughout your lawn
- Low-lying areas are soggy or have water puddles in them most of the time
- Landscaped areas have soils that are too wet to promote healthy plant growth
- Water can be seen building up next to the foundation walls
