Every house needs a drainage system, but not all drainage systems are right for every house. It’s important to find and implement a drainage system that will work well for your specific house. Good landscaping can increase the value of your home, but that becomes incredibly difficult if there is standing water in your yard. Standing water can also lead to damage to your home.
It costs less to get a good drainage system than it would to repair the water damage that gets done to your home.
Having a downspout is an important way to get water from the roof down to the ground, but a drainage system is needed when the water gets down there. An underground pipe can be connected to your downspout to carry water well away from the house. Installing a catch basin underneath the downspout is another way to lead water away from the house. Having a water catching system in a flowerbed can help to remove water from the flowers so that they aren’t drowned in standing water. This can make a big difference to your landscaping, and it can keep plants alive that would die with too much water sitting on them.
