There are many types of yard drainage solutions that Annapolis landscapers use depending upon your problem and property. Property and structural damage occur to many homes each year due to improperly drained water that penetrates the ground and foundation, causing flooding both inside and outside your structure, which, over time, can cause even the most durable concrete to deteriorate and eventually crack and buckle, leading to costly repairs.
Flooding is also typically accompanied by mold, which can decrease your home’s indoor air quality and also be costly to repair.
In either case, standing water on your property can render your home unsightly and unsafe, which can also lower your home value.
Fortunately, there are various landscape solutions that can help prevent water from accumulating in your yard as well as around your structure to help prevent potential damage from pooling water, and working with a dedicated company, like our Annapolis hardscaping company, can help ensure a superior job that lasts, which can also help restore your home value.
Some of our Annapolis drainage solutions include:

Hardscapes Help Yard Drainage
No matter the cause of excess water in your yard, a strategic hardscape design installed by our Annapolis hardscaping professionals can help protect your property from damage. Our hardscapes are carefully crafted using scientifically-based principles that encourage landscape drainage naturally, thus helping prevent water accumulation on your property with minimal effort.
For instance, when installing patios, our Annapolis hardscaping professionals at Paradise Landscape and Hardscape, LLC will also incorporate breathable pavers and catch basins around the perimeter of the patios, which will help water flow easily away from the property.
Retaining walls also provide a good hardscape design drainage solution because, when installed in properties with slopes, they prevent stormwater runoff from rushing down into your yard and around your home.
They also help prevent sediment buildup and soil erosion, which creates imbalanced moisture levels around your foundation that can cause it to become heavy, thus causing it to eventually to shift and crack.

Our Team Paradise also specializes in the installation of various yard drains and drainage ditches, which also help ensure effective yard drainage on your property.
French drains are installed below the ground surrounding your home to help prevent both surface water and groundwater pooling.
To install the French drain, our landscaping drainage technicians will first excavate a trench around the outside area of your home.
They will then carefully insert a pipe containing a series of holes into the ground to enable water to drain through it and away from the foundation, thus controlling the amount of water that piles on your property.
Once the pipe is in place, it will then be covered with sand to enable the water
to filter through.
The trench will then be covered with sod, grass seeds, or another landscape design to restore the look of your property.
French drains are especially useful in cases where the gutter systems around your property spew buckets of water near the foundation, which can damage the structure and nearby gardens, thus ruining your plants and transforming your yard into a muddy mess.
Rushing water on your driveway cannot be soaked up by the pavement; hence it will continue to make its way down the slope of your driveway and into the garage, where it can cause water to buildup on the floor.
Channel drains, also known as trench drains, can be installed in your garage area
help prevent water from entering your garage.
To install the drain, the landscape professional will dig a long, thin trench into the driveway area in front of the garage.
They will then insert a curved shaped channel into the trench and then cover the part with a metal grate, which will allow water to enter through the drain and then exit out the side of the driveway.
The metal grate also helps prevent the drain from becoming clogged with debris, which can prevent the drain from functioning properly.
Downspouts are one of the simplest types of yard drains to prevent water from flooding your yard.
While the gutter enables roof water to drain down through them, a downspout added to the end of the gutter helps divert the water away from your home.
The water from the spout can be diverted up to 6 feet away from your property, usually into a more practical place, such as the grass or a garden especially appropriated for catching rainwater.
However, over time the gutter can become dirty and clogged, or gaps and holes can develop in the gutter, which can prevent water from properly draining through the system, leading to a leaky roof, as well as other water issues.
Meanwhile, the downspout can also become loose over time, which can cause water to be misdirected to more impractical areas of your yard, causing flooding to reoccur.
Therefore, it is important to keep your gutter system clean as well as have it inspected regularly, which our Annapolis drainage professionals can help you do, so your yard maintains proper drainage.

A broken underground sprinkler pipe is another major cause of excess water around your residence.
The sprinkler pipe can become damaged due to various factors, including normal wear and tear, which can cause the pipes to crack, thus causing water to flood the ground.
A broken pipe can also cause flowing water to back up into the pipes, which can also eventually cause the underground water to rise to the surface, resulting in puddles around your yard.
The sprinkler head can also become broken due to normal use, which can cause the head to leak, thus also eventually accumulating water in your yard.
Our Team Paradise are irrigation experts and can quickly identify the cause of your damaged sprinkler system.
Whether your issue is due to a broken lower level pipe, a faulty sprinkler head, or more, we will work diligently to repair your system, using durable materials, to restore the condition of your yard.
