If you’re a homeowner, it’s not uncommon to discover drainage correction needs on your property. Regularly finding unwanted standing water, soggy grass, or mud around your home 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 ranging from small preventative services to major interventions to save structures and protect outdoor spaces.
Common Property Drainage Problems in Lincoln
Wet ground — Soggy, wet, mushy ground is easy to spot and even easier to feel. This condition usually occurs due to unstable grading that promotes water gathering in unwanted places.. Since water takes the path of least resistance, it will collect in spots where grading does not allow drainage to a safe or appropriate area. This can be especially damaging if water collects and softens the ground around your home’s 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 that needs correcting. Puddles around the bases of structures — anything from your foundation to a simple fencepost — are early warnings of future problems. Furthermore, standing water can be an attractive breeding ground for mosquitoes and other undesirable flying pests.
Water flowing into your house — If you have wet carpeting or dampness near your doors or outer walls, it could be from water in the yard flowing towards your home due to a foundation drainage problem. Water in your home is about as serious as it gets and can create perfect conditions for mildew, mold, and fungus, create health issues, and exacerbate allergies and respiratory problems. But worse yet, it can quickly cause irreversible damage to your home that may or may not be covered by your insurance.
