STANDING WATER ON LAWN AREAS
RUN-OFF FROM NEIGHBOR
Pooling water can be unsightly and cause fungus, that can damage lawn areas. The surface water can be a breeding ground for mosquitos and other insects. A catch and release drainage system can collect pooling water with basins and discharge it into more suitable areas using PVC piping. Pop-ups are used at discharge sites in flatter areas. A drywell might be needed as a temporary holding area if grading does not allow for discharge. A pump could be added when accumulations are extreme. Mosquitos can cause serious illness. Addressing pooling water will keep your lawn healthy and help in deterring insect infestation.
Runoff from neighboring properties can cause you to have standing water and soppy turf areas. When homes are close together, water from runoff can even make its way into your basement. French drains with basins for pool collection offer the perfect way to collect and discharge this water, before it accumulates on your property. At times regrading can help to divert this water into more suitable areas. Runoff from neighboring properties can do damage to your lawn and foundation as well as devalue your homes investment.
