Probably the most overlooked aspect of a landscaping project is yard drainage concerns. Without proper yard drainage you can be asking for headaches down the road. After rain and heavy snowfall, the water needs somewhere to go. Especially on large houses the amount of water issued by the roof line spilling onto the yard site can be overwhelming.
Water expelling from the downspouts can lead to wash out or serious erosion. Some houses need to have underground pipes installed to carry the water load to a more drainage-friendly area.
Good general above ground yard drainage is always the best solution for a yard site, but is not always achievable. Each yard site offers different concerns, and a proper evaluation needs to be considered when designing your yard drainage in Calgary.
