Ways We Correct Drainage Issues on Your Property

Custom drainage installation at a Waterloo, IL home.

Our teams have seen it all when it comes to drainage or grading issues. We've learned the best ways to correct these problems so that you don't have to worry about water damaging your foundation, landscaping, or lawn. If too much moisture seeps into the foundation, your home or office structure could become compromised, while too much moisture on your lawn or in your landscape beds can invite in lawn diseases or plant diseases like root rot. Here are the ways we correct drainage problems:

  • French Drains: We install a French drain that redirects water to another part of your yard.
  • Downspout Drains & Piping: If your downspout is too close to your home or office, we add in new drains that move the water farther away from the building so it has more room to dissipate.
  • Dry Creek Beds: A dry creek bed is a beautiful way to move water in your landscaping or lawn. We create a trench filled with rocks that resembles a creek bed so that water flows away from the problem area.
  • Swales: Swales are also referred to as dry creek beds, but often they are paired with other subdrainage such as pipes and drain inlets to supplement the functionality of the swale. We can design a swale that matches the overall tone of your landscaping, whether it's more traditional or modern-looking.
  • Rip-Rap Rock: Rip-rap rock is often installed on hillsides to help prevent soil erosion. We install various sizes and shapes of rocks depending on the scope of the project and how rapidly water is eroding away the soil.

We also perform land grading to level out any areas of your yard or to help adjust water flow.
