Signs of Poor Yard Drainage

There are a number of different signs that your yard has poor drainage. The most obvious sign would be pooling or puddles in your yard. Inside your home, you may experience mildew in your basement, warped wood or bowing floors, or a Wet Crawl Space.

Benefits of Exterior Drainage Systems

Having a successful waterproofing system comes from having a properly designed and installed drainage system in and around your home. These integral parts of your system will collect water and ensure that it does not infiltrate your home or basement. Depending on what your needs are, we can help design an exterior drainage system that works well for your home and is within your budget.

There are many benefits to having an exterior drainage system. Some of these include:


  • Preventing Soil Erosion: When it rains, soil moves from one area in your landscaping to other areas which can be referred to as “soil erosion.” When you don’t have the proper drainage system, over time this displacement of soil can cause many issues with the soil depth and cause other leading damage to your landscaping.
  • Preventing Standing Water: Standing water in your yard can not only create a dangerous environment and slippery surfaces, but it also causes your landscape to drown. Standing water can be extremely unsightly as well as attract mosquitoes, which no one likes to have taking over their yard.
  • Preventing Water Damage: Without the correct drainage you may experience this fast moving water forcing its way through the cracks in your foundation. This can cause an added problem of water in your basement.
