If you’re a homeowner, it’s not uncommon to experience drainage problems on your property. Regularly finding unwanted standing water, soggy grass, or mud on your property can be an annoyance at best and the precursor to a major problem at worst. Since 1998, New Horizon Landscaping has helped residential and commercial clients throughout Lincoln and the surrounding areas with their drainage correction needs. Some of the more common problems in landscape draining involve are:
Wet ground — Soggy ground is easy to spot and even easier to feel. This condition usually happens due to unstable grading. Since water takes the path of least resistance, it will collect in spots when it can no longer flow away from your foundation.
Puddles and standing water — Ideally, water should drain away from all areas of your property. If you see a puddle remaining 30 minutes or more after a rainstorm, the odds are good you have a landscape drainage problem. Standing water can be an attractive breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Water flowing into your house — If you have wet carpeting or dampness near your doors or outer walls, it could be from water from the yard flowing in due to a foundation drainage problem. This can be a serious problem as it can create perfect conditions for mildew, mold, and fungus, as well as create health issues such as allergies and respiratory problems.
