With the storms coming and coming, getting the water off your lawn might start to be a problem. All Phaze Irrigation can help with elegant drainage solutions from landscaping features to plumbing.
A swale is a shallow trench with a berm (flat shelf or ledge) on the downward side. It allows you to collect and drain rain water.
Rain Water Gardens
Rain Water Gardens are sunken down a bit to allow for run off water to drain and filter. They are cleverly disquised as well, as most feature flowering bushes or flowered features.
Pavers can also help with draining, especially on walks and driveways. Pervious paving is permeable, allowing the water to move through the pavement to drain below. Some paveres have holes in them to allow the soil and plants to grow through them. Others fill in the gaps of the pavers with smaller stones or gravel to keep a paved look yet still allowing the water to seep through. And still others are made of stones grouped together that allows the water to go through easily.
Our Best Drainage Recommendation:
French Drains and Plumbing
When you are talking heavy storm drainage, you might want to consider a drainage pipe or a french drain. French drains can be stylishly concealed with gravel edging or a river bed feature.
To have a french drain, a trench is dug, a perforated pipe is laid with gravel around it. Next, top soil is laid above it. The perforated pipe and the gravel allow some of the water to filter through the landscaping while the pipe delivers over flow and run off off the property.
You can either conceal this with the sod that matches your lawn, or cover it with a gravel to create interest. A riverbed look can draw the eye and assist further in draining.
Whatever your drainage problem is, we can devise a solution! We hope this blog has been helpful and you will give us a call!
