SIARA DESIGNS recently completed a new landscape installation at our Richardson home and we couldn't be more pleased with Lena and her crew. We had a 30 foot oak trimmed, old shrubbery removed, new sod placed, automatic watering system optimized for better coverage, new beds designed, prepared and planted. We also had a brick walkway added and downspout diverted underground. All the jobs were done within just a week, done well and were reasonably priced. Lena is very responsive to questions and helpful solutions. Her designs are creative and she makes sure the job is done to her satisfaction and yours. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Siarra Designs, we are so glad we found them and we would use them again in a heartbeat.
Lena and the team at Siara design did an awesome job on our patio this summer, despite the 100+ degree weather. Everything turned out amazing and I'd highly recommend them again for any future landscaping projects. Friendly people, on time, on budget.

Lena and her team are excellent. We used them to edge our front yard flowerbed and walkway and they stuck their costs, timelines, and commitments. They were super easy to work with and would not compromise on any detail, no matter how small. Highly recommend working with them; we definitely will again!

Lena and crew were very responsive to what we wanted, keeping design clean and simple. They were able to use a lot of already present well established plants, adding new plants to dress up and revitalize an old tired landscape into the modern look more suitable to our newly updated house. Thanks guys!

The Importance of Proper Drainage in a Lawn

When it is not correctly directed through a lawn, and away from a home or office space, water can be damaging. A lawn needs water to survive, but too much creates a multitude of problems. Some of the most common challenges of poor drainage are:

  • Soggy ground and areas of standing water that cause root rot
  • Water running toward a home instead of away from it, leading to leaks, flooding in basement areas, and structural damage
  • Uneven lawns that produce fall hazards
  • Soil erosion 
  • Plants and shrubs that become subject to disease from excess water exposure
  • Mold issues

More costly than effective drainage services, the damage that water does to a home can be significant. The frequent causes of drainage challenges are improper grading and slope, compacted soil, erosion, and inadequate downspouts. Investing in quality McKinney, TX, drainage and grading services can make a difference in the structural integrity of your home.

Solutions to Landscape Drainage Problems

There are effective drainage solutions to protect your home while benefiting your sod . which creates significant prevention of soil erosion and is more cost-effective than soil replacement after erosion occurs. Siara Designs accounts for these solutions when considering the layout of a landscape. 

French Drains

French drains are affordable solutions for moving excess water on the surface level away from a structure. French drains can address the issues created by downspouts that are too short and alleviate the standing water this causes. French drains use gravity to move water, so proper grading is imperative.

Sump Pumps

For structures situated in areas prone to flooding or standing water, installing a sump pump in the basements and crawl spaces of homes can pump any water out of these areas to prevent water damage. When a building’s exterior holds dirt and grime from water and environmental exposure, our power washing services can breathe new life into tired surfaces. Power washing effectively cleans your home, walkways, driveways, patios, and decks by removing stains, fungus, and bacteria growth caused by standing water due to poor drainage and improper grading.

Stonework or Hardscaping

Various materials can be used to build retaining walls that protect a lawn and home or office space from water damage and allow for proper drainage. Retaining walls are beautiful and functional, creating depth and giving character to any landscape while serving a function.

River rock and gravel can also be used to form dry streambeds in a landscape that accommodates excessive water runoff while creating a flow and aesthetic dimension in a lawn. Allowing water to drain effectively through and across a property can discourage infectious pests, such as mosquitoes, from breeding in standing water.

Siara Designs can incorporate these natural materials into your lawn to provide quality grading and drainage services in McKinney, TX.

Begin by Addressing Grading Challenges

The most effective way to address drainage issues is by working with Siara Designs’ McKinney, TX, grading and drainage services team to manage the grading challenges in your landscape. Grading services allow for the slope of a terrain to be changed to create a healthier environment for your lawn. Numerous benefits are gained from grading, and it is one of the essential parts of planning when you build a new home or design a landscape.

Improves Drainage and Prevents Erosion

The lack of grading is a primary reason for poor drainage. Grading works with gravity to build a lawn in a way that allows water to flow away from a home and protect it. Proper grading allows water to flow at a controlled rate across a lawn, preventing topsoil from washing away during North Texas downpours.

Grading also protects those areas in a lawn enhanced by decorative lawn and garden services. The detailed additions that bring your landscape to life, add seasonal beauty, and provide attractive gathering areas for friends and family become compromised when the grade of a yard is ignored. Patios and walkways become covered with water, while fountains, planters, and yard art become unstable.

Keeps Plants Healthier

Water that washes quickly across a lawn never reaches the roots of plants because of its inability to permeate the soil. Grading allows for the slow movement of water across a lawn, increasing its ability to soak in slowly instead of carrying vital nutrients away.

Keeps You Healthier

Improperly graded lawns lead to potholes, divots, and washes that lead to falls, sprained ankles, and even back injuries from stepping into or riding over affected areas with a lawn mower.
