The Perfect Drainage Solutions
When your property becomes waterlogged, it is typically the result of one major problem—improper landscape grading. And any homeowner with pooling water or a flooded lawn will tell you one thing: Poor grading results in a big, old mess! So, what can you do to solve chronic stormwater puddles or irritating drainage problems? Two effective solutions we often share with clients are grading and swales.
Of course, before we explain the benefits, it’s important to know exactly what each one is.
Understanding Grading and Swales
Property saturated? It happens. That’s why you have South Jersey’s No. 1 drainage solutions company on your side! Our landscape grading contractors will do their magic so flooding and water pooling is a thing of the past. Here’s a quick lesson:
What is a swale?
A swale is a low, shallow channel with gently sloping sides. These can be either natural landforms or man-made and are designed to manage water runoff and reduce stormwater pollution.
What is grading?
Grading is a way to structure (or restructure) land so that water drains in the proper direction—away from your home and foundation.
How Can Grading and Swales Help You?
If water puddling and ground saturation are huge problems for your property, grading and swales may be just what you need. Grading certain areas redirects stormwater to a new area. Depending on the severity of your situation, our regrading may involve laying new sod, excavating soil or even removing and replacing grass. Also, if the design permits, we may even construct a swale to harbor the redirected water. End result? Drier solutions for you and your family!
Here are a few more benefits to both:
- Grading protects your foundation from excess moisture
- Grading and swales eliminate yard saturation
- Swales are an easy maintenance-free drainage solution
- Swales utilize no equipment to push water away from your home
