Whether you’re five or 50, puddles can be super fun—jumping and hopping to create satisfying splashes. Not so much, though, when those puddles arise in your yard after every rainfall. In fact, when water collects in your yard to create swampy conditions, it can wreak havoc on your trees and plants, entice annoying bugs to gather in droves, and even damage your home.

Thankfully, there are several drainage and grading solutions to prevent yard puddling, small and large, protecting and maintaining your landscape.

French drain

This type of drain involves a trench lined with geotextile fabric filled with gravel that surrounds a perforated pipe covered by sod positioned to move excess water away from causing potential damage. Not only are French drains highly effective, but they can also be designed to be hidden under an attractive feature of your landscaping such as a dry creek bed or rain garden. [Fun fact: French drains are not from France, but were first described and promoted in 1859 by a farmer/lawyer from Massachusetts.]

Buried downspout

A discrete way of keeping roof water from collecting around your foundation, a buried downspout can collect a significant amount of runoff as an invisible extension of your gutter downspout.

Surface drain box

Buried to be flush with your lawn and often including a quite decorative cover, this catch basin is a simple and durable way to divert excess water when placed in a proper location that runs either to or in conjunction with another drainage system, like a French drain.

Gravel trench

Gravel trenches are narrow, stone-filled channels situated over well-draining soil that utilize the empty spaces between stones to act as a temporary reservoir for stormwater as it soaks into the surrounding soil. When they detain and infiltrate water, they reduce flooding and erosion and assist in the removal of harmful contaminants from the stormwater.

Channel drain (or trench drain)

These drains capture and convey excess water to prevent mildew growth, concrete staining, and costly structural damage. Channel drain systems collect light to moderate water flows from driveways, concrete and paver patios, pool areas, courtyards, and walkways, directing it to drainpipes for proper release downstream. On average they are 4 ¾” wide and 3 ¾” high. The most common designs are load-bearing supported from both sides as well as underneath the channel. The bottom flanges typically provide an anchoring lip for straight installation to prevent floating in the most extreme conditions.

Sometimes, keeping water away from the foundation of your home requires reworking your property’s grade or creating a berm to redirect water flow. Drainage grading or residential grading simply adds or removes soil to create a slope away from your home, and it’s most often a subtle slope that may not even be noticeable (except to the water itself). A berm (a purposeful pile of dirt) can have multiple benefits in addition to drainage, including slowing erosion, blocking unsightly views or unwanted sounds, and beautifying your property.

As with every landscape solution, hiring the best drainage and grading company do the install is imperative.
