And Hello to Outdoor Entertaining Again
There’s no avoiding it. A big thunderstorm brings copious amounts of rain. If you’re lucky, once the rain stops that puddled water will get absorbed into the ground. However, for some homeowners, post-rainfall puddles turn into muddy pits of mosquito-infested waters that never seem to disappear. And this is never any fun.
Saturated lawns can ruin your outdoor enjoyment—especially during those months when barbecue season is in full swing. No one wants guests traipsing through a soggy lawn or jumping over puddles near walkways—just to make their way to your cocktail party. Soggy, saturated lawns put a true damper on outdoor parties. So, the question remains, can this oversaturation be treated?
In order to treat the issue, we must first uncover the root cause of the problem. Below are a few common causes:
- Improper grading of your property
- Soil type
- Lack of proper drainage systems and stormwater collection
Get Back on Dry Land
To help remedy saturated ground, we must devise a plan that pushes stormwater away from both your yard and your home. Our process requires visiting your home first. We’ll examine your lawn, your foundation and the surrounding areas. Once we complete our thorough analysis, we’ll develop a method to fix your lawn. Some of our more popular solutions include:
- Regrading property
- French drains
- Dry well installation
Here’s Why You Need a Professional to Stop Ground Saturation
When ground saturation overtakes your lawn, it’s just a huge wet—sometimes muddy—mess. And families with young children and pets often suffer the most. Kids and dogs want to be outside. But wiping them down each and every time their feet (or paws) hit those puddles is no fun. Here are five reasons you should consider us for professional solutions.
- Your yard is unusable for playing and entertaining.
- You are at higher risk for water in your basement.
- Mowing the lawn leaves tire tracks or ruts.
- Muddy paw prints and shoe prints are tracked through your home.
- Your garden bed could start to erode.
Of course, there are more problems that can arise from a saturated lawn, but these are some of the most common. When you decide it’s time to dry out, call us. Our landscapers will arrive with answers in hand!
