Draining / Grading

Good drainage in the landscape is as important as proper irrigation. Too much water in landscaped areas can result in numerous plant diseases and can even kill sensitive plants. If turf areas are overly wet they can be prone to soil compaction and scarring from footprints and mowing equipment.

Draining and Grading is also important around buildings to prevent leaks and moisture from getting into building foundations and walls.

Surface drainage systems aim to collect excess surface water from hardscaping, planter beds, window wells, and specific turf areas where water tends to collect.

Proper draining and grading can:

  • Reduce puddles
  • Irrigate plantings
  • Protect buildings from leaks and moisture
  • Create interesting shape and flow to your yard

Save yourself time and money! LTD Landscaping and Nursery can install a sub-irrigation system that will pay for itself in the money you save on conserving water and by the time it frees up for you. When you water by hand 50% of the water used is lost by runoff and evaporation.

Sub-irrigation advantages:

  • Water saving
  • Reduced or no runoff
  • Reduces puddles
  • Precise water control
  • Better plant growth

By using a sub-irrigation system your lawn and plantings get the proper amount of water only when they need it. This is especially important when water restrictions are in place. Using the timer and running your sub-irrigation system at night or early morning will also reduce evaporation.
