Yard Drainage Solutions in Baltimore & Annapolis MD and Surrounding Areas

Wet spots in your yard can be frustrating, and ruin your landscaping. Grass will die if it’s underwater for too long. You can’t mow over wet areas, and everyone tracks mud into the house. If the surface water is close to your house, it can cause your basement or crawl space to leak, creating all sorts of health and structural problems. Without proper drainage solutions in place, water may pool up during heavy rains, undermining the structural integrity of your foundation and drowning expensive plants.

In addition to ground water caused by heavy rain patterns, the water table can also be a major contributor in drainage problems. In the low lying areas of Northern Maryland, the water table can be just inches below the surface. Such conditions create all sorts of problems for below-grade foundations and landscape plantings.

Rainfall is the driving force that sets drainage problems in gear. Where heavy downpours are common, poorly drained sites can become flooded even when drainage systems are in place, but can be disastrous when they are not. Add heavy rainfall to a high water table and the potential for surface flooding & foundation problems become magnified.

 

Grading Drainage

This simple technique that involves sloping the soil away from your home’s foundation, should be evaluated prior to a more extensive drainage solution. One of our experts at Maryland Mold & Waterproofing will assess the gradient needed to drive water safely away from your foundation.

A foe creek bed can channel water away from a low spot or direct runoff into a rain garden or dry well. Our talented drainage & landscaping crews will make your creek bed look great even when it’s dry.

We can solve your drainage problems and create an attractive landscape feature at the same time with a dry creek bed. Of course, we don’t have to turn your yard drainage solution into a creek bed. A simple swale, with grass seed or new sod, can be an effective and subtle way to control the surface water on your property.
