Outdoor Drainage Solutions Chesterfield, Macomb & Beyond

Have you recently gone into your yard after a rain shower or watering your lawn only to discover multiple soft spots or standing water? If the answer is yes, then your outdoor space is likely experiencing issues with drainage, which drastically reduces the ability for you and your family to enjoy your yard. It also signifies that water from the outdoors can flow toward your house and potentially cause substantial water damage.

Issues with yard drainage in Metro Detroit can occur for many reasons, including a bad slope, improper soil compaction, and landscaping features that force water to flow toward your home instead of away from the structure. At Great Lakes Landscaping , we have years of experience addressing issues with drainage systems. Our team is well-trained and capable of assessing and solving drainage issues for residential and commercial customers.

If you’d like to get more information on your property’s drainage issues, request a quote or call us at (586) 210-0803 and our team will be happy to talk with you about our solutions for landscape and yard drainage.

French Drains

A French drain, also called a drain tile, is an underground drainage system used to remove excess water from an area. It is typically made up of a perforated or non-perforated pipe that is surrounded by landscape rock. The system is installed in a trench that has been dug surrounding the perimeter of structures, or targeted areas where water is pooling up. This trench contains a slight slope to ensure that water flows in the proper direction. Like the way a gutter collects and diverts water from your roof, French drains do so at ground level.

While many homeowners may view installing a French drain system as a DIY project, an improperly installed French drain can do more harm than good. Our well-versed landscape technicians will design and build a drainage system with the ideal slope to ensure reliable drainage for years to come.

Dry Creek Beds

A dry creek bed is a great way to improve the drainage in your yard and add some visual interest to your landscape. They are typically created by excavating a trench and lining it with poly underlayment or builder wall fabric with varying sizes of river rock installed on top. The trench is then filled with more rock, leaving space in-between for water to flow through.

Not only can dry creek beds can be used to redirect excess rainwater away from vulnerable areas such as near your foundation, but they can also be used to create a more natural appearance in your outdoor space. So they are a great choice for most properties.

Re-grading your yard or landscaping is the most natural approach to solving common drainage problems. During a grading project, our skilled equipment operators make the decision for the best course of action to manage the flow of water. This sometimes involves renovating your grass areas or landscape beds and installing new material with a proper slope beneath the visual elements.

If your home or business property is encountering problems with outdoor drainage and a custom drainage solution is necessary, such as re-grading, a drain tile system, an underground catch basin, sump pump extension or a downspout extension, please get in touch with us today.
