Choosing the correct yard drain for your property’s landscape can be a confusing decision since there are so many options. Luckily, expert landscapers can help you choose the best drain for your yard. Keep reading to learn about the different types of yard drains.
While a well-maintained landscape will increase the value of your home by 15 %, a poorly-maintained landscape can lead to costly repairs from water damage to the structure of the house. The best way to prevent water damage is with a drainage system which actually is less costly than repairing water damage.
One method of yard drainage is redirecting water from gutters to a connected drain pipe that is buried under your landscape. This drain can carry leaves from the gutters which can clog, so using a catch basin in line with the drainpipe to catch debris before it clogs a pipe is a good option.
Without drainage, the roots systems of plants can be damaged by overwatering which can cause health issues in your plants. For this, installing a round or square basin to remove excess water from the flower bed makes a good yard drain option.
Atrium grates are often used for flower beds since they are domed above the landscape. This means they do not get covered or closed off easily by mulch but they can only be used in areas where there is no foot traffic.
If you have flooding or puddling throughout your yard, installing catch basins at low spots throughout your yard can eliminate puddling by redirecting water to safer areas.
