Let us help you with your drainage issues:
Drainage systems are installed to control the amount of water flow into your landscapes, gardens, lawns, and basement or foundation. This helps prevent soil erosion after heavy rains. Excess standing water can choke your plants and rot the roots. Proper drainage helps prevent the loss of nutrients in the soil. With all the rain we get here in the Lowcountry each summer, proper drainage is very important to maintain proper care of your lawn and plants. Usual drainage tasks we perform are:
- Runoffs from gutters using catch basins
- Redirecting gutters to the road
- Installing French drains to provide a channel for water to flow through via a gravel-filled trench
- Removing excess water from landscape beds
What is a catch basin and how is it used?
A catch basin is a large drain, usually placed in low areas of a yard, to catch surface runoff water. It usually consists of a surface drain that leads to an enlarged box beneath that is then tied to an underground drainage system that finally leads to downspout drains or storm sewers.
