Addressing Your Drainage Issues

Drainage issues on your property can wreak havoc. This can include flooding basements and standing water on your landscape. If you are unsure about whether you need to address drainage issues on your property, here are a few things to look out for. Any of these issues should be addressed immediately before further damage is done!

Cracking or Flooding

Water in the basement is obviously a big problem. Not only does the water damage anything in its path including drywall, furniture, etc, but it also poses electrical hazards and could cause future mold issues. Proper landscape grading can be a solution to this problem. By ensuring that water is flowing away from the house and not collecting around the perimeter, you can help prevent basement flooding.

Pooling Water

Water pooling up across your landscape can leave it looking more like a swamp than a yard! When the ground saturates to the point of pooling, it can be harmful to the grass and other plants on your property. It also means that your yard takes longer to dry out, which means less time you get to enjoy using it.

Erosion

After heavy rains, you might notice small streams forming across your property. Over time, this rain can cause serious erosion, leaving your landscape torn up by the forces of mother nature. We often see this around the edges of homes where the gutters meet the ground.

Addressing Your Drainage Issues

If you have any of the above issues on your property, consider getting in touch with a landscape professional at Nurney to talk about drainage solutions. Not only will an investment in drainage protect your property from further damage, but it will also give you peace of mind knowing that heavy rains and big storms won’t leave your property vulnerable to water damage!
