Weatherproof Your Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina Landscape with High-Quality Drainage Solutions
Give excess water somewhere to go with superior drainage solutions from Pleasant Landscapes. Rain and irrigation can oversaturate your Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina landscaping, which turns it yellow or pulls vital nutrients out of the soil. Excess water can also jeopardize your foundation and permanent structures. Our drainage designs and equipment can keep your lawn hydrated while also directing excess water away from your plants and foundation.
Drainage Solutions Protect Your Landscaping and Your Home's Foundation
Your home needs protection from the buildup of water caused by heavy rains, overwatering, and runoff. Most houses are built on lightly graded soil that directs excess water away from landscaping and structures. Without this in-built protection, water can destabilize your home's concrete foundation. If you have a pier and beam foundation, water can even flood your crawl space and encourage mold or mildew to grow. Pleasant Landscapes can install drainage solutions specifically designed to redirect water around permanent structures and send runoff away from your property.
Too much water can also damage your landscaping. Excess moisture can unearth and disturb your plants' roots. It can also encourage fungi, pests, and infectious diseases to set in near vulnerable plants. Puddles can even damage your lawn. Standing water leaves the soil marshy and makes turf turn yellow or even die out before the end of the season. With a combination of pumps, drains, and soil modifications, your landscaping can stay safe from the damage caused by poor drainage.
Good Drainage Starts with an Inspection and Professional Design
If you notice any of the above signs of drainage problems, call us at (843) 886-9314. We can send an inspector to survey your current drainage system and find key areas for improvement. Then we can design the best system for your property based on:
- Your property's slope and soil composition.
- The water needs of your lawn and landscaping plants.
- Structures on your property such as your house, patio, and swimming pool.
- Your area's average rainfall and proximity to the coast in the greater Charleston, South Carolina, area.
We can design a drainage system that works with your soil's absorbency and mineral composition to keep your property safe. Good drainage also keeps your landscaping green, lush, and healthy.
Use French Drains and Light Grading to Keep Water Away from Your Foundation
If your home has raised beds or is in a low-lying area, French drains can divert water away from your foundation. Our drainage teams can dig trenches into the soil and install perforated piping that collects excess water. These pipes will be covered with gravel to allow easy drainage. The best part about this solution is that you have nearly invisible drainage near your flower beds and vulnerable structures. French drains keep your home safe without detracting from the beauty of your landscaping.
We can also add and remove soil on your property to create the right degree of slope. In South Carolina, building codes require a large area of sloped soil around your home that pushes water away. This is even more important near the coast and with the heavy rain that Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, and the surrounding area receives. We can fill in patchy soil to give you a seamless, smooth lawn that mitigates standing water and puddles.
Sump Pumps Give You More Drainage Options in Low Terrain
Sometimes French drains aren't the right solution for your property. If you don't live adjacent to a low-lying area, our team can install sump pumps to keep your landscaping safe from excess runoff. We will dig discreetly placed sump pits and install pipes to direct water safely away from your structures and lawn.
Keep your sump pumps in great condition with our drainage maintenance services. These services include:
- Inspecting and tuning the equipment.
- Clearing plants and organic debris away from the drains and pipes.
- Inspecting the surrounding area for excess moisture or signs of system failure.
Our drainage experts know how to design the right drainage system for your property. We can outfit your lawn with the French drains, sump pumps, and soil gradient it needs to flourish and stay healthy.
