Fix Yard Drainage

Do you have drainage problems in your yard? A yard or a lawn with pooling water is unsightly. If you don’t have a good yard drainage system, especially in Baton Rouge, then the entire appearance of your house can be ruined, not to mention the usability of your yard. Stagnant water also gives a very displeasing smell and the excess water can actually damage the plants and be breeding grounds for mosquitos.

To most people, it seems a really good idea to drain all their excess water to a sidewalk or the street.  And this can be a really effective way to expedite water flow into the sewer.  But how do you effectively accomplish this while on a budget?

In addition to adding PVC drains, there are a lot of reasonable ways you can improve your yard drainage. You can add soil in order to improve the yard drainage. This is a feasible option for the yards that have clay as the topsoil. Adding organic material to the topsoil can improve the drainage. You can also add lime as well. Lime aggregates the soil and creates more spaces between the soil particles.

Then there is also the option of making a French drain. French drain is a pipe that collects water from one part of your yard and takes is to another part of the yard. The simple rule that will help you a long way in improving yard drainage is that water always travels on the path of least resistance. Water always moves downhill and it can easily travel through these plastic pipes.  In a French drain, perforations are used to deliver water to the areas that are dry. You do not make perforations where you do not want to deliver the water. A French drain is a great way to improve yard drainage.

However, installing French drains is a very complicated task. You need to know where you utility lines are in the ground before digging. You have to have an understanding of which part of your yard you should choose to collect water and why?

You will come across a lot of people who will tell you that it is very easy to make a French drain. But the truth is that it is not easy to make a French drain and you should ask professional to do it for you.
