Importance of Drainage Systems
Although not usually visible, drainage systems are very important in gardens and landscapes. An effective and functioning drainage will keep excess water from accumulating. It also keeps water from flowing or seeping to areas where it should not go, like the home’s foundation and lower areas in the landscape. It can prevent a lot of water or drainage issues such as:
- Soil erosion
- Leaks and moisture intrusion
- Soil compaction and scarring
Types of Drainage Solutions
Custom Landscaping & Design offers various drainage solutions for a wide variety of water issues. If you are unsure about any drainage problem in your landscape, our team of experts can conduct a careful assessment of your area and then come up with solutions that guarantee the utmost benefits.
The common drainage systems that we recommend are the following:
Surface drainage system. Surface drainage solutions are meant to drain out water from the surface of a garden or landscape. The water flowing to the drain, whether concrete or metal, will be channeled to a basin-type structure under the ground and then filtered of any debris, like grass, stones, or soil. This way, only the water could flow down to the piping system.
This system can be built to accumulate water into a water tank where it could be recycled back into the garden, whether for water features or irrigation. We also offer various styles and designs with this type of drainage system. Some examples of surface drainage solutions are trench or channel drains and catch basin drains.
Sub-surface drainage system. A sub-surface drainage system is installed underground. It is usually installed in garden beds, turfs, or low parts of a landscape or garden where water will most likely accumulate. The water then gets filtered of debris and then allowed to flow in another place far from the vegetation or landscape area.
This is an ideal option for property owners who want to have drainage systems that are not highly visible. However, this type requires careful planning since it would have to be installed under the ground. It involves excavation in the landscaped area so you should only allow experienced people like us to work on this type of drainage system.
