Drainage & Grading

Standing water can compromise the structural integrityr structures of the foundation of your home.

Why is Drainage Important?

Maintaining proper drainage is a common issue with the hills and valleys in throughout the Shenandoah Valley. It can be hard having to mow a lawn that is muddy days after a rain or watch trees bend over and eventually die from saturated roots or erosion. Standing water is the ideal breeding ground for mosquitos.

At Waynesboro Landscape and Garden Center, we  transform swampy yards to beautiful lawns that extend your living space.

If we stop water from leaking into your basement it wil prevent damage and mold growth. Some common drainage solutions include installing French Channel drains or extending and burying drain spouts away from the house. Retainer walls, dry river beds, and proper grading of drainage channels to a catch basin or gate are all options available depending on what best suits your yard layout.

We’ll get water to go where it’s meant to go; away from your home instead of creating unwanted leaks and pooling.

Why is Grading Needed?

Grading is necessary for creating a landscape that does not drain nutrients or chemicals to your city’s water system and prevents unwanted water run-off.

We measure the exact slope needed, we can create channels that will catch draining water from your property. The water will be able to absorb back into the earth instead of overflowing into unwanted areas of your yard.

Before we build any type of patio or hardscape, grading is important to make sure it is level and water will drain off efficiently.
