Keep Your Landscape Healthy With the Help of Our Drainage Contractors New Orleans
“April showers bring May flowers…” but here in New Orleans, our rain is a bit more than a little “shower.” Heavy rains can severely damage your landscaping, washing away root systems and soil and taking important nutrients from your gardens. After a major rainstorm, remaining pools of water can become homes for mosquitoes and drown your already-traumatized flowers.
Don’t let the New Orleans rains wreak havoc on your garden – give us a call! Our reliable NOLA drainage service creates safe paths for runoff from rain, using surface drainage, subsurface drainage, irrigation, and other techniques that can keep your garden healthy.
How Drainage Helps Your Landscape
When rain saturates your soil, you need a way to direct the water away from your landscape to a drainage creek, storm drain, or underground drainage system, so it can flow away from your home and back into a larger body of water.
When directing water away from the soil, it’s important to avoid taking too much water; especially if you’ve installed an irrigation system, such as sprinklers, you don’t want to starve your plants of water as you attempt to drain excess rain.
With our drainage service, we carry a variety of products that can pull water away from your plants and toward a safer drainage route without taking too much moisture:
- With surface drainage systems, our landscaper will install trenches – sometimes reinforced with pipes, gravel, or specialized fabric – to eliminate unwanted standing water that pools in your garden after a rain. Instead of sitting in your flowerbeds or around your trees (harboring mosquitoes and slowly killing your plants) the water will move above ground from your home to a proper drainage outlet.
- If you have problems with saturated soil, talk with our landscape architect about subsurface drainage systems. Subsurface drainage pulls water that the soil has absorbed, so that your plants don’t “drown” after a rainstorm; after pulling the extra moisture from the ground around the plants, the system directs that water toward an outlet away from your garden to drain, leaving your plants happy and healthy.
