Dry Creek Beds

Dry creek beds have many applications. Have a slope on the side of your house where you lose topsoil to erosion after a hard rain, or is that slope always muddy at the base? Kill two birds with one stone and install a dry creek bed to stop that erosion and take care of that muddy spot.

Our talented crew of landscape professionals can design a functional dry creek bed that performs its job well and looks good doing it.

French Drains

French drains typically help remove sub-surface water. They can also be tied-in with surface drains in certain cases. We use French drains to dry-up continually we areas in the lawn and landscape areas. If you have an area that is always wet, we can help!

Downspout Drains

Downspout drains are often useful if water drains from your downspouts right near your foundation. We have all seen those spots on the sides of our houses where the level of the topsoil is higher in the turf area than near the foundation, this can be caused by your downspouts and splash pads routing the water incorrectly. Add some downspout drains and we can easily fix this problem. You know what they say, an ounce of prevention.

Re-grading

Re-grading is usually used along with downspout drains, but is not exclusive to them. We want a good positive slope away from the foundation. A good deal of, but not all, drainage issues can be solved by simply changing the grade of the areas near your foundation. We add topsoil and make certain that your water flows away from your foundation.
