The correct amount of drainage on your property is absolutely critical to keeping your lawn looking beautiful and protecting the structural integrity of your home. Unfortunately, many properties in North Texas experience serious drainage issues that can cause damage to their landscaping, lawn, and home. Here are some of the benefits you’ll experience with professional drainage correction for your home or commercial property:
1. Keep Your Lawn Healthy
Although recent weather conditions have made water a scare resource throughout Texas, ensuring your lawn is watered efficiently and carefully is critical to preventing a variety of lawn health complications. Too much water can lead to dead spots, shallow root development, and fungus growth. Drainage correction ensures that water only reaches your lawn when you want it to and will give your lawn a fighting chance in today’s drought-like conditions.
2. Protect Your Landscaping
Many homeowners work diligently to keep their landscaping clean and pristine. Drainage problems can easily ruin otherwise beautiful landscaping by overwatering plants and carrying mulch away. This is especially true for landscaping directly around the perimeter of your home that is affected by poorly placed downspouts.
3. Preserve Your Foundation
Perhaps most importantly, drainage correction also prevents damage to your home’s foundation. Even with waterproofing and strong foundation support, water can erode your home’s foundation, causing leaks in your crawlspace and compromising your home’s safety. If you notice cracks along your home’s foundation or throughout your home, they may be caused by unsafe settling exacerbated by excess moisture and poor drainage.
