Drainage Solutions from your Friends at Metro Lawn Care

Sometimes improper drainage will cause water to flood or stand around the foundation, which over time can cause permanent damage to your home.

Metro Lawn Care can design a proper drainage solution that will solve these problems. Since every yard is different, we use different methods to solve drainage problems. Here are some of the systems we use:

Grading: Regrading allows water to run off in the way it should. We bring in heavy equipment and re-slope the ground, changing the contours of your property. Grading is generally a partial solution to drainage problems.

Dry Creeks: Dry creeks are beautiful and functional. These drains are lined with waterproof material and filled with landscaping gravel. They can be attractively arranged to accent the current landscaping instead of detracting from it.

French Drains: A French drain is a trench which contains a perforated pipe covered with gravel. French drains are a highly effective way to direct water away from the foundation of your home.

Underground Drainage System: An underground system is custom-tailored to your property. Digging a complete system leaves the homeowner with a nearly invisible solution to drainage problems.

If you have a slope directing water to your home, low-lying land that contributes to pooling or other drainage problems, a professional solution is best.
