If a drain has to be installed, there are a number of solutions that can draw all the excess water away from the landscaping. Most of these solutions can be easily concealed and are easy to install. We have successfully installed a number of drainage systems in homes across Mobile, Prichard and Fairhope and the surrounding areas. Let’s take a look at the different types of drains that are available:
- Area Drains - Most areas drains are made up of a simple drain that is connected to an underground pipe. These are an ideal solution for low-lying areas or if there is constant flooding in your garden/yard when it rains. These drains move the accumulated water from your property into the common street drainage system and protect your landscaping and home from damage.
- Channel Drains - Installing channel drains is one of the best ways to protect your garden or lawn from patio runoff. These long channel-like drains can be installed on a sidewalk or any other concrete surface and the water gets directed into the pipes that are underneath the surface, away from your home. Typically, these drains are installed in pool areas to prevent the surrounding lawn from getting flooded.
- French Drains - These are an ideal solution for facilitating drainage of any raised landscaping or planters. This drain is wrapped in landscape fabric and then covered with rock. This prevents the soil and roots of plants from clogging all the drains.
