What is Drain installation?

Effective drain installation includes building a drainage system that conveys sewage, rainwater, and other liquid waste to a point of disposal, either in the sewer system or septic tank. The main goal of installing a drainage system is to collect and remove wastewater from the building or property.

Drain installation involves a variety of methods and materials like pipelines, open channels, natural surface channels, and canals. For yards and landscaping, drainage can include channel drains, French drains, and dry wells.

We offer drainage solutions for residential and commercial properties. Our services include indoor and outdoor drainage work. Our professional drainage specialists will guarantee an expert installation service.

No matter how complex your drainage system is, our drainage experts are fully trained to diagnose a host of drainage issues and provide the best possible solution.

Types of Yard Drainage Solutions for Your Home

It can be challenging to deal with drainage issues in a yard. With our professional drainage experts, we bring innovative solutions for a new property or replacement drainage system. We give a free quote for drainage solutions that you need.

The high-quality drainage systems that we can install for your yard in New Orleans with the best technology and equipment are:

1. Slope

We make sure that water is drawn away from your yard effectively. We begin by creating a trench that slopes away from your garden. We use a 2% slope in the elevation of the bottom of the trench from one end to another to allow water to move properly through a pipe or gravel bed.

2. Catch Basins

A catch basin is a final destination for draining water from a building. It can also serve as a stopping point where debris can be collected. It usually serves to slow down the flow of water before it reaches another destination.

We install catch basins strategically to be able to effectively leach water into the ground and not cause flooding. We add coarse stone or gravel to help in easily dissipating water.

3. Trench Substrate

In yards where drain lines are used, we place coarse stone or gravel at the bottom of the trench. This will help in dissipating excess water on the surface.  Depending on the drainage capability of the soil in your garden, the drain line can first be installed with gravel and then covered with topsoil for the lawn to grow in.

Otherwise, gravel can be placed right on top of the drain trench and left exposed. This is called an open drain. Another option for lining the trench to help dissipate water from the surface is using landscaping fabric over the stone.

Whatever technique is used, it is important to maintain the proper slope and surround the drain line with gravel. Our drainage expert will assess your yard or garden and let you know the initial drainage plan for effective collection and moving of the water.

For more information about the types of drainage systems and techniques used for yards and landscaping, call us today and we will connect you with a landscaping drainage expert.

Importance of Drainage Systems

Having an effective and working drainage system is vital to keeping your garden or yard in top shape. Pools of water in your yard are very unsightly and can cause health problems. Stagnant water is a breeding place for different insects and pests.

An efficient irrigation and drainage system properly installed by experts can help solve and prevent the pooling of water.

Our drainage installation services aim to bring these benefits to you:

1. Helps Your Landscape

A landscape in a garden or yard is better maintained with an effective drainage system. When a drainage system is properly installed, excess water will always be directed to the proper destination and will not be collected and form pools.

It will also help in preventing water from going into place in the garden where it shouldn’t.

Most importantly, it can prevent a lot of water or drainage issues such as:

  • Flooding
  • Soil erosion
  • Leaks and moisture intrusion
  • Soil compaction and scarring

2. Establishes Proper Irrigation

Irrigation in a yard or landscape is very critical in maintaining the health of plants and the beauty of the space. When a drainage system is properly installed, water can be directed through proper channels into a drainage creek, a storm drain, or an underground drainage system.

In installing effective drainage systems for a yard or garden, we provide surface drainage solutions. This can include the installation of trenches, which are sometimes reinforced with pipes, gravel, or specialized fabric. This helps unwanted water from staying on flowerbeds and around plants. Instead, the water will be directed to a proper drainage outlet.

3. Maintains Landscaping

A well-designed drainage system will prevent over-saturation of the soil in your garden or yard. This will keep your landscaping with optimum moisture for plants and prevent starving your plants of water.

A well-balanced drainage system will be able to provide enough water for plant growth and remove subsurface drainage water that can cause issues.  We install subsurface systems that help maintain the optimum level of moisture for your plants.

The subsurface systems that we install for landscaping drainage systems will pull water that the soil has absorbed so that your plants will not drown from excessive water after a rainstorm. The water will be directed away from your garden into a proper drainage outlet.

Drainage System: Frequently Asked Questions

The downspout and gutter types of drainage systems are the most common type found in residential homes. Gutters are installed along the edge of the roof. They collect rainwater that would otherwise fall directly onto the ground. Downspouts are attached to the gutters and carry the water away from the house.

An effective drainage system allows for the free flow of water and in many situations, it reduces the chances of the water building up and then reducing the chances of your property flooding. Many drainage systems boost the chances of mosquitos breeding in the system because of the stagnant water in the system.

Drainage ensures that the soil is properly aerated. If you have excess or standing water it can choke your crops. Drainage reduces soil and nutrient loss from runoff and can help avoid soil erosion. Drainage on hill slopes helps to reduce the risk of soil slippage.

Slot Drain Systems

The slimmer profile does not make the Slot Drain any less effective in draining water runoff away from structures and foundations. In fact, Slot Drain Systems are more effective than other drainage options to the strength and durability of the materials that make up each of the components.

So my husband and I bought a house with a large yard and decided to ask Big Easy Landscaping to work their magic. It took about a month or so, but the wait is worth it. The once barren area is now a beautiful lush area perfect for morning coffee and brunch with family and friends.
