Good drainage in the landscape is as important as proper irrigation. Too much water in landscaped areas can result in numerous plant diseases and can even kill sensitive plants like expensive evergreens. Overly wet turf areas are prone to soil compaction and scarring from footprints and mowing equipment.
Houston Landscape Images can Install Drainage systems and French Drains using a variety of techniques to remove unwanted water from an area, whether on a residential or commercial Property.
Houston Landscape Images Install surface and French Drains systems that are aim at collecting excess surface water from hardscaping, planter beds, window wells, and specific turf areas where water tends to collect. Water enters a surface drainage system through catch basins, which have a sump area that collects debris to prevent clogging of the piping.
French Drains collect sub-surface water from poorly drained areas and carry it to a main drainage line, dry well, ravine, or the street. French drains can intercept water that is draining from adjacent properties and carry it away before it enters your landscape.
French Drains are constructed using simple materials; pea gravel or crushed rock, woven landscape fabric, and a perforated drainage pipe.
