Our yard drainage systems will keep water from building up and causing more serious problems. Arizona residents may think that standing water on the outside of their homes is just an annoyance, but there is more at stake than what meets the eye.
Water is a powerful substance that, if left standing, can lead to issues such as:
Water is needed for your flowers, grass, and other plants to grow. But too much water will hurt the roots of plants and kill off the landscaping that makes your yard look nice.
If your yard doesn’t drain well, water can pool for days, weeks, or longer. Not only will the plants be hurt, but the soil will also be affected.
By putting in a yard drainage system, soil erosion can be stopped. Soil erosion happens when water flows over the surface of the soil and breaks up some of it, which then moves with the water. Over time, this can cause a lot of soil to move around in your yard, which can change how deep the soil is.
When it rains, water can damage your land in two main ways – splash erosion and sheet erosion. Splash erosion happens when raindrops hit the ground and scatter small bits of soil, while sheet erosion is caused by runoff water. including water exiting a gutter system.
One of the worst things about pools of water is that mosquitoes will be drawn to them. Most of the time, these insects like to breed in water that doesn’t move. Mosquitoes are annoying, and some of them can spread diseases , like the West Nile Virus and Dengue.
When water stays in the ground and mixes with soil, it makes muddy spots around your house. These surfaces will get slippery, which could cause people to fall and seriously hurt themselves or one‘s guests.
Drainage in your yard is also important for your home because it keeps your house from sinking. If the yard and land around the house don’t drain well, it can cause major problems for the house’s foundation.
You can look at your house from the inside and the outside to see if there are any problems with the foundation. Some examples include cracks in the walls, floors and windows that open and close properly. A house that is slightly leaning to one side may also have foundation problems. These can be avoided by installing a proper yard drainage system.
