22 April 2021

Excess water and poor drainage in your garden result in soggy lawns, flooded yards and flowerbeds. Before developing a drainage channel you need to locate the source of excess water. Ask yourself whether you can possibly eliminate that source. Broken underground pipes or sprinklers can be repaired, but if excess water comes from uncontrollable sources such as heavy rainfall or underground water sources, a drainage channel is might very well be in order.

Another thing to look at is the soil in your garden. Thick clay soil often contributes to pooling water. Mixing your soil with sand or compost can also help cut out excess water. Lastly, you also need to look at the elevation of your landscape. This will determine the depth and direction of your drainage channel.

Most drainage problems can be resolved with a drainage channel. To make your project work however, you need to choose the right drain type. Open ditches and gravel trenches can be a temporary solution. If you are looking for something sustainable, a drainage pipe might be the best option.
