Irrigation and Drainage

Yardology provides comprehensive plans to combat drainage issues. Our landscape architect can create a design that is both functional and beautiful.

With North Carolina’s heavy clay soils, drainage is a common problem. The goal is to direct unwanted water away from its source to where you want it to end up. A few simple steps are to make sure your gutters are cleared of debris, in good repair and flowing to a location away from the foundation of your home.

Catch Basins and Trench Drains

There are a few things to consider when designing your drainage system.

Considering the items above, installing trench and/or catch basins can benefit low-lying areas with poor drainage. A trench basin also referred to as a channel or strip drain is characterized as a long, narrow or channel shaped drain. A catch basin is typically installed beneath the surface to keep it free of debris like pine straw, garbage, leaves and mud. Both drains are utilized to direct water away from an undesired area and can be customized to fit into any landscape.

French Drains

French drains are commonly used to relocate unwanted ground and surface water away from an undesired location. The drain itself is usually made up of perforated corrugated pipe overlaid with some sort of gravel. The drains are installed underground and the perforated corrugated pipe is covered with commonly used filter fabric to prevent clogging of the drain.

Downspout Connections

An essential part of storm or surface water management is to control run off from places like gutters and roofs. These connections can be buried to be out of site of the landscape or create rainwater reservoirs to conserve water during the dryer, hotter months of summer. The main goal of this water management element is to keep water away from the foundation of your home.
