Grading & Drainage
Rain is a fundamental necessity for the livelihood of any landscape, but what about when rain is actually doing more damage than good?
Good landscaping doesn’t start or end with what the eye can see. The foundation for a quality landscape is what’s going on underground. Nothing will sour the joy of your gorgeous home or commercial outdoor area faster than a basement full of water, drowned plants that you paid top dollar for, or perpetual wet spots and standing puddles on your lawn. That’s why drainage matters.
If drainage systems are not functional, the landscape is not functional. Failure to address drainage issues can lead to massive property damage to both your outdoor areas and your home or business. That’s why evaluating drainage needs is the first thing that must be considered before moving forward on the installation of your custom design.
Drainage may not be the prettiest part of our services, but it might be the most important. That’s why we at Architectural Landscape Design, Inc. are committed to confronting drainage concerns head-on and installing them correctly from the start.
As a part of our initial evaluation of your property, we will take a look at your current drainage situation, including where water is currently directed and the steepness of slopes on your property. It’s a great time for us to talk with you about any issues you have with standing water. If you’ve had problems with water in the basement, your mulch and top soil spilling out into the yard after a downpour, or if your yard becomes a small pond after a storm has passed, let us know.
Drainage Is the Foundation of Any Landscaping Project
We want to make sure we get everything right from the start. After our initial consultation about your custom landscape design, we will need to evaluate how your ideas will affect water runoff. For example, if we put in a new patio for an outdoor kitchen, the water that previously seeped into the grass now has to go somewhere else. We will discuss what changes need to be made and how those changes fit in with your budget and vision.
The initial site prep we do as we excavate for your new landscaping is the most important step in installing drainage solutions. We want to solve drainage problems without creating new ones, and that’s why we’re so committed to making sure no detail goes unnoticed. Doing the job properly the first time saves both you and us a lot of unnecessary time, money and headaches.
