Go with the Flow Drainage & Landscaping is the ultimate solution to all your drainage and landscaping needs. We specialize in creating effective and efficient, sustainable drainage systems that not only protect your property from water damage and erosion but also enhance its aesthetic appeal. For many of our residential clients, we recommend one or a combination of the following solutions to divert water away from low-lying areas and protect their home and surrounding landscape.

French Drains

A French drain is a shallow trench filled with gravel or rock containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. It is an efficient way to prevent water from penetrating or damaging your home’s foundation.

Benefits of French Drains:

  1. Diverts Water: The main benefit of a French drain is its ability to divert water away from your property. It effectively prevents saturation and flooding in your yard or low-lying outdoor spaces like patios and paved areas around pools.
  2. Reduces Soil Erosion: By controlling the water flow, a French drain can significantly reduce soil erosion in your yard.
  3. Prevents Damage: French drains help to protect your foundation from water damage, which can lead to costly repairs.
  4. Increases Property Value: A well-drained property is more desirable, enhancing your home’s resale value.

Yard Drains

Yard drains work much like a shower drain. They are installed in low-lying areas of your yard where water tends to accumulate. The drain collects the water and channels it away, preventing puddles and waterlogged patches.

Benefits of Yard Drains:

  1. Prevents Flooding: By directing water away from your property, yard drains can prevent flooding in your yard and home.
  2. Protects Your Landscape: Puddles can drown plants and ruin your landscaping. Yard drains help to keep your lawn and garden healthy and beautiful.
  3. Preserves Foundation: By keeping your yard dry, yard drains help to prevent water from seeping into your home’s foundation, thereby protecting its structural integrity.
  4. Enhances Comfort: A properly drained yard is more comfortable for outdoor activities. Areas of water accumulation can be breeding grounds for mosquitoes so it’s important to prevent water from pooling.

Channel Drains

Channel drains, also known as trench or linear drains, are essentially a type of floor drain containing a trough or channel-shaped body. They are used for the rapid evacuation of surface water. Channel drains are often used on hard surfaces like concrete and pavers. They can also be used in areas to blend with the landscaping.

Benefits of Channel Drains:

  1. Efficient Water Management: Channel drains are designed to handle a large volume of water, effectively reducing the chances of flooding during heavy rains. They are perfect for areas where water tends to accumulate, such as driveways, patios, or pool areas.
  2. Versatility: They come in a variety of sizes and designs to fit different types of surfaces and applications. Whether you need a drainage solution for your backyard patio or a commercial parking lot, there is a channel drain suitable for your needs.
  3. Simple Installation: Compared to other drainage systems, channel drains are relatively easy to install. Their linear design means they only need a single slope for effective drainage, reducing the complexity of the installation process.
  4. Aesthetically Pleasing: Channel drains can be designed to blend seamlessly into the landscape, maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your property. They can be topped with grating that matches your outdoor decor or hidden beneath landscape features like rocks.
  5. Prevents Property Damage: By effectively directing water away from your property, channel drains help prevent water damage to your landscape and buildings, saving you from costly repairs.
