Drainage System Design and ​Installation services
Drainage systems are an important part of keeping your home and property safe from the damaging effects of water. The main goal of any drainage system is to collect water and redirect it to the proper drainage location. Without a sufficient drainage system, drainage problems can cause damage to your home’s foundation, your lawn, and your landscaping. An effective drainage system will eliminate or reduce drainage problems and help prevent future water problems.

When you need a drainage system: Signs of a drainage problem

There are some specific signs that signify a drainage problem. These may occur after medium to heavy rainstorms or on an ongoing basis. For example, you may be in need of a drainage system for your backyard or around your home if you are experiencing:

*A soggy or wet yard
*Puddles that do not evaporate or take a long time to dry following a rainstorm
*Water leaking through your basement walls into your basement
*Foundation damage and cracked basement or foundation walls
*Soil erosion and erosion control problems
*Flooding in your back or front yard during rainstorms
*Water pooling and collecting on your patios, sidewalks, or walkways
*Unwanted water streams during heavy rains
*Mulch that washes away from your plant beds or silt or soil that washes onto sidewalks during     rainstorms

Erosion control Design and Installation services

Most erosion control problems will start as a small issue, but can quickly become major concerns if not properly addressed. Therefore, it is important to talk with professionals in order to develop an erosion control solution for any erosion problems you may be noticing around your home or throughout your landscaping. By utilizing one of several erosion control solutions, the experts at Greenman Land Management can help you to mitigate or eliminate any erosion problems.

Depending on the degree and severity of your erosion problems, we can utilize a variety of erosion control options in order to address and resolve your problems. If you would like to learn more about any of these options, please contact the experts at Greenman Land Management for your consultation.

*Turf Establishment: Often the simplest and most effective way to control minor erosion problems is to establish and maintain a thick and healthy turf. This process can include grading an area to reduce the degree of a slope, seeding to develop new grass growth, and fertilizing to promote the growth of existing turf.

*Retaining Wall Construction: Retaining walls can be used as an effective erosion control solution as they will hold back soil that is eroding away. When creating a retaining wall for erosion control purposes, it is important to properly design and install the wall so that it does not cause further drainage problems and so that it is able to effectively control the soil and water.

*Drainage System: For areas where poor drainage is causing erosion problems, the first erosion control step should be to create a drainage system that properly collects water and directs it to the appropriate location. This may include the use of down spout drainage systems, French drains, or catch basins. By controlling and eliminating excessive water runoff and controlling hillside water flow, you can often successfully eliminate and control many erosion problems.

*Special Erosion Control Products: For serious erosion control problems that cannot be addressed with simpler solutions, there are a variety of special erosion control products that can be used to prevent soil erosion and control rainwater runoff. The types of erosion control products that we can utilize to address your erosion control problems include silt fences, waddles, jutte netting, straw mats, gabions, rip rap rocks, and pipe products.
