Do you find your lawn turning into a swamp every time heavy rain pours? Or do you get an unexpected lake in the middle of your greens? Then it might mean you need a clever and fast drainage solution that’s designed to siphon all that excess water problem you have. Read on and find out which clever drainage solution fits your Katy home the best.
Dry Creek Bed
Embrace the swampy landscape by marking it with a dry creek bed during drier days. Not only will you remove the problem of bringing your drowned ground cover to its former lush, you’ll now have a cost-effective solution which also works for both dry and wet seasons.
Go one step further from the dry creek bed by creating a mini-lake recess into the ground. This especially works when your area gets easily flooded even when light drizzle falls.
Inject some creativity into your drainage system by mapping it out like a maze or labyrinths. This way, you’ll not only direct rain and floodwater away from drowning your plants and lawn, you’ll also have something amusing to look at even when the raindrops keep falling.
If your outdoors has some gentle slopes or sharp curves, direct the floodwater from softening and eroding the ground by fortifying the slopes and curves with stones.
Another clever and perhaps the most environmental-friendly drainage solution is to direct floodwater to a reservoir. Whether you’d opt for a water tank, a recycled fridge or bathtub, this drainage solution will not only clear your grounds of that swampy look when rains come in, you’ll also cut your water bill when it comes to replenishing your plants. You can even connect your container to a sprinkler system and voilà! You’ll have hit two birds with one stone.
