There are so many wonderful advantages homeowners enjoy during the summer season – the bright sunshine and blue skies, gorgeously colorful gardens, outdoor picnic meals and activities, and more.
One of the more unpleasant aspects of the summer season comes in the form of torrential downpours which can occur during summer thunderstorms, often revealing less-than-ideal storm water damage and drainage problems. These can create storm water and erosion control issues that leave quite a blemish on your Main Line landscape design and even potentially the foundation of your house.
Never fear, though — help is within reach! Experienced landscape design, installation and maintenance companies such as Aardweg Landscaping can make quick work of your storm water drainage woes. Here are a few strategies to consider:
- French drain system – This is a brilliant system where a gravel trench (often developed in combination with a perforated pipe) is used to redirect unwanted surface water to a more suitable area. Such a technique is particularly ideal for channeling water away from the house foundation in an attractive and effective manner.
- Light grading – If there are sink holes, decaying stumps or other problems under the grass in your lawn, they will become manifest more and more over time, especially when there is a great deal of rain. Aardweg will grade the areas in question to remove these storm water runoff issues and will create terraces or berms both to naturally prevent irrigation problems associated with these hidden challenges as well as to enhance the beauty of your Main Line landscape design.
- Retaining walls – This is another attractive erosion control solution. Retaining walls are utilized to direct storm water to appropriate drainage areas and can be used in conjunction with attractive landscaping trees, shrubs and flowers to create a beautiful and functional part of your overall design.
Whatever your residential drainage needs, the company’s 35 plus years of expertise will definitely get your Main Line landscape design all shipshape and ready to handle any summer or fall rainstorm!
