Commercial Drainage Solutions With Curb Appeal

During the winter, the weather in Texas is a perfect time to get ready for next summer’s droughts as well as finding commercial drainage solutions for the property that will look breathtaking for clients or customers.  Interestingly, due to a federal focus on reducing the carbon footprint throughout America, there have been several programs developed that give incentives to commercial businesses for making certain types of changes to the landscape.  Written below, a couple of the biggest budget savers are described so that you can get a better idea of what a true full-service landscaping company has to offer for drainage.

Commercial Drainage Solutions With Curb Appeal

Get rid of the lawn for good?

Although there is a lot of rain in the winter in Texas, summer is another matter.  To avoid wasting water on the lawn in the summer in case there is a drought, prepare ahead of time by getting your lawn removed during winter.  This is also a good time to get your drainage pipes installed in a way that is actually effective for moving storm water into the drain or a water-saving barrel.  Removing the lawn is also a great time to have a large-sized storm water cistern installed under the property’s landscape that is complete with plumbing fixtures for irrigating plants or trees.

How landscaping pros protect your home from erosion

Keep in mind that if you remove the turf, erosion prevention is key and adding gravel to the bare earth is the solution.  Of course, we help remove the turf, but we also create curb appeal by adding the right rocks and plants to make your property stand out. When you are considering preventative drainage strategies for winter, the goal is to redirect water away from the home’s foundation.

Create More Conversation With Arbors, Pergolas and Decks

If you’re looking to add an outdoor structure, such as an arbor, a pergola, or a deck to your commercial space, look no further. Everyone enjoys being outdoors, and nothing adds more pleasure to it like some fine outdoor construction.

Create More Conversation With Arbors, Pergolas and Decks


Arbors are a vertical construction that you can add to landscaping or gardens for a few different reasons. You may want one to provide outdoor shelter, more privacy, or just simply as an accent piece. You can use arbors as a way to separate different gardens or elegantly guide traffic through your space. Arbors are either built attached to buildings or freestanding, and they support delightful vines with beauty and ease.


Pergolas are different from arbors in that they consist of columns that support an actual roof of beams and rafters. You can have it covered or left open. Some people like them covered to create an area that’s protected from the elements. Like arbors, pergolas are either attached to buildings or freestanding. Pergolas are typically larger than arbors, and some people even classify them as building extensions. Pergolas can also easily support vines.


We all know that a deck is a great space to spark conversation. It’s basically a raised outdoor floor or platform that can make for the perfect spot to eat, relax, and/or entertain guests. Adding a deck is not only a great way to expand space, but it can significantly enhance the value of your real estate.
