Water is essential to maintaining a healthy lawn and garden, but too much water can result in flooding, pooling, soil erosion, and significant damage to your landscaping and even your house. Making sure your lawn gets the proper amount—but not too much—moisture is a challenge that many homeowners face.
If water isn’t properly draining from your property, then installing a drainage system may be the solution you’re looking for. A drainage system collects excess water and redistributes it to prevent flooding and damage to your property. There are two basic types of drainage systems:
A surface drainage system collects rainwater from the surface of your property and redirects it elsewhere, typically to an area of your property that gets too little water or can handle higher amounts of water. Surface drainage often requires the creation of channels or ditches and re-grading the land to eliminate puddling and over-saturation of your lawn or garden.
A subsurface drainage system is comprised of specially designed pipes that are installed just beneath the soil surface. These pipes collect excess water and move it to your garden, other parts of your property. Water can even be stored in specialized containers for future watering needs. If they are well-planned and constructed with high-quality materials, then subsurface drainage systems will function well for a very long time.
