Stop Battling Drainage Issues
Are your drainage systems ready for another year of unpredictable Texas weather? When some homeowners hear the term “flood,” they imagine a nightmare scenario with large amounts of standing water inside the home. The reality is that even minor flooding—such as an inch or two of water lingering on your yard or driveway—can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your property. If you notice large amounts of standing water on your property after it rains, you should look into a comprehensive, professionally-installed draining solution as soon as possible. Excess water that does not drain properly can wreak havoc on your foundation, driveway, lawn, landscaping, and more. By expert estimates, a mere one inch of flood water can result in $25,000 of damage to a home. Investing in proper drainage today eliminates that unnecessary cost down the line.
The French drain is a time-tested drainage method that many homeowners in Texas have employed to good effect. The idea behind a French drain is fairly straightforward: you take pooling water in your lawn or along your foundation and divert it to a more suitable location. This second location might be a cistern, rain barrel, or special pit in some settings. French drains are used in many modern applications to safely divert undesirable water into the city’s wastewater system. The runs from point A to point B can sometimes be substantial in length when designing a French drain, and this will require the digging of a rock-lined trench to install the drainpipe. This can be covered with any number of landscaping techniques, such as turning it into a flower garden, making a decorative rock feature, or simply covering it with sod and grass to effectively make it invisible. A French drain installed by the professionals at Lone Star Turf may be the perfect solution if you are consistently experiencing wet spots on your property.

Effective gutters can help you do all sorts of crucial things, such as keeping your basement dry, mitigating floods, protecting your driveway and landscaping, and even keeping your guests dry as they enter your front door.
