Options for Water Utility Management
When we come to your home to do an evaluation of your lawn and landscaping design, it will help us determine what type of storm water management system will help water will drain safely away from your home or building, and avoid water damage. We specialize in installing the following water management systems:
- French drains – A French drain is a long trench dug in the most problematic area. The trench is filled with a perforated pipe wrapped in waterproof fabric and covered with a few layers of stone or gravel. Gravity directs the water to flow downhill, and the water naturally collects and rains through the stones and pipe.
- Channel drains – A channel drain is a plastic or concrete grate over a channel or trench system. As water accumulates, it flows downward into the channel drain and is directed away from the home and garden. Channel drains need to be cleaned regularly so they don’t get clogged.
- Catch basin drains – Catch basin drains collects water and direct it away from a home to prevent flooding and into an existing underground drainage pipe.
- Downspout adapters – A downspout adapter changes the shape and direction of a downspout at the point where it attaches to another pipe.
