Drains that may work well when added to your landscape include
These are long narrow drains added to patio or deck edges and in between main structures. The channel drains are connected to underground pipe systems and will have grate covers to prevent leaf and grass blocking the drain.
The catch basins are designed to prevent excess water from accumulating in and around the foundation of the home.
Usually placed at the bottom of sloped surfaces so that excess water filters through them. They are designed to drain patio surfaces. Deck drains are distinctive in that they are attractive and have decorative covers made of metal, brass or stone.
Ditch and Slope drains
They are small ditches or slopes found along the edge of the yard to get rid of excess water. These may be paved or simply landscaped with the ideal slope being one percent for the paved slope and two percent for the landscaped slopes.
These are added to the landscape to prevent the soil and surfaces from getting saturated. French drains are constructed from perforated drain pipes which are then covered with grass or rocks.
Since every property has its own unique flow characteristics, getting an effective drainage system is both a good investment and insurance policy. The drainage system will improve the longevity of the home and landscape.
