French Drains and Catch Basins – Both are installed underground.  French drains are typically used to draw excess groundwater and surface water away from an area of concern.

Bury and Redirect Downspouts - Depending on the situation, several options are available to redirect the water.

Dry Creek Beds -  Making a shallow depression in a certain area that might have a slope and filling it in with river rock of various shapes, textures and colors can improve landscape drainage in addition to looking nice.

Rain Gardens - Rain gardens are perfect if an area of yur garden remains always soggy and grass is tough to grow.  There are many shrubs and perennials that tolerate wet conditions and at the same time make a great habitat for birds and butterflies.

Re-grading – Grading is a critical component of drainage.  Sloping soil away from the home's foundation is common in addition to low areas filled in to level the grade.  Sometimes installing a berm or swale will divert water flow.
