Outdoor Drainage Systems

Updated: Jan 20, 2022

In any season, the presence of standing water brought by rain and melting snow is always a threat. Keeping water away from the foundation of the house is imperative because once it soaks the foundation, it will start the slow deterioration, and in the long run, affects the whole property that sits on it.  Lack of a proper drainage system will lead to flooding or worse, the collapse of the buildings.

On the other hand, a good drainage system allows the free flow of water. This prevents the accumulation of stagnant water which is a perfect breeding site for mosquitoes. This also prevents soil erosion since excess water washes away the garden’s topsoil. When soil is eroded, all the effort you poured in landscaping will all go to waste, and you will have to suffer stepping on a muddy ground surface.

If problems on drainage remain unsolved, stagnant water will attract vermin and insects which may spread bacteria and cause diseases. In addition, excess moisture would make wood-based materials a mat for termites. And the worst thing that could happen is when water floods your basement after the freeze-thaw. This standing water affects the air quality of your home, and at the same time, may lead to the development of molds and green algae.

Even with little rainfall, your goal as a homeowner is to prevent water from draining towards your foundation and puddling in your landscape. It is then a must to protect your investment.
