Prevent Standing Water in Dips & Low Spots
Water puddles that persist long after rainstorms create a muddy mess, threaten affected grass, promote moss growth and serve as breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Soggy lawns are inconvenient and prevent outdoor enjoyment, especially as the standing water creates additional problems that plague your health (mosquito bites) and that of your turf grass.
Our EZ-Flow® gravel-free alternative to traditional French Drain systems collects surface water, distributing into the subsoil. This solution ensures your lawn is not plagued by puddles that refuse to disappear long after the rains subside. The reduction of excess water helps ensure healthy turf instead of muddy paws and shoes.
Improve Poor Soil Drainage Conditions and Prevent Soil Erosion
With nowhere to send the water that naturally accumulates due to low spots, or poor slope and soil conditions, storms can cause puddles that persist, leading to disease and fungus in your yard and gradual sloping or sinking of walkways. Over time, without healthy grass and a solution to the oversaturation of groundwater, the flow of water will continue to erode the soil, worsening the problem.
Our Flo-Well® stormwater retention system captures excess water so it can slowly leach into the soil instead of oversaturating your yard. This solution protects the health of your lawn and the stability of your walkways and reduces the soil erosion that would otherwise compound the problem.
Eliminate Standing Water in Planting Areas
Since plants need sufficient oxygen to survive, excess water can drown your shrubs, trees, ornamentals, flowers and other sensitive plants, wiping out your landscape investment. Waterlogged roots are susceptible to decay, and without the lack of support, trees and other heavier shrubs can die or, in extreme cases, topple over.
Installing catch basins and atrium grates protects root systems from rot by drawing water away from garden and landscape areas prone to puddling. BG Outdoor Services helps you overcome the poor soil drainage conditions which are worsened by shallow root systems and red clay to cultivate a beautiful landscape.
Reduce Excessive Water from Downspouts
Connecting your downspout to an underground pipe with a built-in catch basin diverts water safely away from your foundation. Protect your most important investment, your home, with a lasting solution that prevents such danger to your foundation and basement.
