3 Ways to Improve Your Yard’s Drainage Systems, Wyoming, Ohio

While most people only think they need plumbers to deal with interior water problems, issues with exterior drainage systems are a surprisingly common occurrence. Flooded areas of your yard can turn your lawn into a mud hole, while also contributing to mildew growth and basement flooding. As the team at A All Valley Plumbing & Sewer Service in Cincinnati, OH, explains, however, there are a few key ways you can work around this problem.

Consider the following solutions to resolving issues with your yard’s drainage systems:

  • Check For A Simple Fix: Quite often, the solution to your drainage systems problem is relatively simple. If water is consistently flooding a low area of your landscaping close to the house, simply extending or redirecting a downspout could be enough to resolve the issue. In other cases, relocating a sump pump discharge pipe could quickly fix the problem.
  • drainage systemsCreative Landscaping: Unique landscaping features such as a creek bed or rain garden can effectively redirect water while also adding a distinctive look to your yard. Creek beds can be easily constructed by digging a shallow ditch that will redirect water and then lining the area with boulders and shrubbery. While rain gardens don’t remove water from your property, filling the low part of your yard with plants that consume lots of water can help reduce flooding and mud.
  • New Drainage: Quite often, the most effective solution to remove excess water will be to install a new drainpipe or even create a dry well. While the installation of these features generally requires the assistance of a contractor, these drainage systems will quickly direct water out of your yard to help you avoid the hazards of a flooded lawn.
