Rain GardensProper management of stormwater runoff from rooftops is an essential part of an effective drainage system. On flatter, well-draining properties, downspouts can sometimes be connected to rain gardens. By holding and infiltrating rainwater, rain gardens help protect our waterways and reduce flooding. These gardens can be shaped and sized to fit your yard. They also can be attractive landscape features, filled with native plants or other shrubs, trees and plantings that fit your soil, sun conditions and surroundings. In some cases, stormwater runoff from rooftops must be diverted into existing sewer lines. These closed systems are a dependable way of diverting excess stormwater away from the area of concern.
French DrainsFrench drains are typically used to draw excess groundwater and surface water away from an area of concern. French drains consist of a perforated drainpipe covered with clean stone. These drains are installed below ground, and the clean stone is covered with filter fabric to prevent the back-filled soil from clogging the stone and drainpipe. French drains can be incorporated into landscape beds creating an aesthetic component using decorative stone or can be buried under the lawn so that they become invisible. Depending on the location, our designers and installers can find the solution that best fits your unique situation.
