Yard drainage is one of the most overlooked maintenance items on homes today

Paved areas, landscaped yards, and swimming pools are some of the most common areas affected by yard drainage issues. Over time yard drainage issues can contribute to erosion problems, insects, and above-grade basement leaks and structural issues. Schmitt Waterproofing has the knowledge and experience to ensure that the proper drainage system gets installed. We can resolve the drainage issues at any home.

A poorly draining property is at risk of water damage every time it rains. Poor drainage contributes to cracked and settling driveways and foundations, pooling water in yards and around swimming pools, erosion issues around the home, insect problems. It is the leading cause of dead landscaping in this area. The best solution for poor drainage is a properly designed, professionally installed drainage system. Drainage systems can consist of various items to help protect the home and property.

Schmitt Waterproofing offers various solutions for yard drainage issues, including dry creek beds, French drains, catch basins and underground downspout extensions. We can use dry creek beds to stop soil erosion and push large amounts of water runoff where we want it. French Drains are a great solution to address soft, soggy areas without leaving an open trench or drainage ditch. We use catch basins to manage pooling water in specific areas catching water through a surface grate and then move it underground through pipes. Finally, downspout extensions will allow underground pipes to tie directly into gutter downspouts to move the water away from your home.

Why do I need to address yard drainage issues on my property?

Poor drainage leads to erosion as well as foundation issues. If your lot is on a hill, poor drainage will rapidly cause excessive erosion on hillsides. Suppose water is pooling and flowing towards the home. In that case, it will cause excessive weight loads to be applied laterally to the foundation wall, which encourages bowing and cracking in the foundation. Wet dirt is significantly heavier than dry dirt.

How can you help address my yard drainage issues?

At Schmitt Waterproofing, we use various methods to control the water around homes, including dry creek beds, French drain systems, and catch basins. We will implement the necessary design for a drainage system to make your drainage problems go away depending on your issues.

How much damage will be done to my yard to complete drainage work?

We can remove and place back most landscape finishes around homes back to original condition, making it appear as if we were never there. We often remove and reinstall sod to complete drainage system installations. We can also seed and place straw in areas where grass has not been able to grow.
