There are effective drainage solutions to protect your home while benefiting your sod or turf, 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 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.
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.
