Yard Drainage and Solutions

Yard Drainage and Solutions

It’s been a rainy week in the Kansas City area! While rain is a good thing, it can also cause many problems for your yard drainage. Issues that can happen include grass suffocation, soil erosion, and standing water that attracts pests. Your lawn and house foundation can really suffer from these complications. Let’s go over three solutions for drainage issues. 


Downspouts are one solution to home drainage problems. They are pieces of plastic that redirect water away from the foundation of your home. If water pools near your home, it can cause cracks to form. Downspouts are a low cost option for your lawn and are easy to install. A professional landscaping company can take a look at your home to develop the best drainage solution for you.


Another solution for your yard drainage is grading. Some lawns slope towards the foundation which can have disastrous consequences. Grading corrects the slope of your lawn and allows water to run in a different direction. A landscaping company will make sure the topsoil is compact. They will also make sure there is an appropriate amount of slope for the grading to be successful.

Custom Drainage System 

The last solution to discuss is a custom drainage system. A custom system, such as a French drain, is the most efficient way to solve a drainage problem. This is the most expensive option, but it will ensure your yard stays happy and healthy. A professional landscaping company will assess your property and work with you to find the right solution.
