Remembering The Importance of Drainage

A front yard landscaped with rocks to help prevent erosion.

With all of the nasty weather that’s plagued the southern regions in the past few months, it’s important to know the importance of drainage. Many home owners may sleep soundly thinking that their outdoor landscape is up-to-date on its drainage system but should they be as confident as they are? It’s unfortunate but true that many homeowners don’t even realize their drainage system may be faulty and that can lead to thousands of dollars in landscape repairs. The damage effect of having an out-of-date drainage system works similarly to dominoes in that one problem often causes another and then another and before the homeowner realizes they have an outstanding amount of impairment throughout their property. Here are just some of the many reasons you should make sure your outdoor drainage system is fool proof.

  1. If you have a faulty drainage system, you run the risk of ruining your foundation. If water does not have a proper place to evacuate, it will often run to the lowest area possible which is often your home. If you do not properly drain the water that collects in your outdoor landscape then your home’s will be the first one to suffer and will become unsafe.
  2. Mold. Nothing ruins a party better than mold and mildew build up. Mold can cause problems to your foundation, your home’s internal structure, and can even cause health problems for you and your family.
  3. Many homeowners don’t realize that the reason they have bugs around their house is due to an excess in moisture. Lots of our cephalopodic friends are attracted to moisture and that can lead to creatures such as termites moving into your home.
  4. While most of the time water will flow to the lowest natural spot, it is not rare for the collected moisture to remain stagnant in one specific area. This can cause mild flooding and severe damage to your outdoor landscape.

Whether you want to prevent these problems from occurring or if they’ve already occurred and you want to prevent it from happening again, the first step is to make sure that you either already have a stable drainage system or make sure that you’re on the right path to getting a stable drainage system. Our team at Outdoor Makeover and Construction is highly trained to bring you the best outdoor drainage system possible so that you can rest easy knowing your home is safe.

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”
