We get to enjoy the benefit of year-round landscaping in warm, sunny Florida, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have to contend with a season of rain. Unfortunately, rain can pose challenges for homeowners in the form of flooded basements, leaky roofs, deteriorating patios, submerged walkways, and soil erosion if the excess water has nowhere to go. At Beautiful Blooms Landscaping, we can incorporate a drainage system into your comprehensive landscape renovation to control and divert the water. Let’s explore five drainage solutions that will prevent water from causing damage to your property.

French Drain and Other Drainage Solutions

1. French Drain Systems

A French drain is an effective solution for managing water around your property. It consists of a trench filled with gravel and a perforated pipe running through it. Water enters the pipe and is channeled away from your property. It’s as simple as that!

2. Gutters and Downspouts

Gutters and downspouts are a crucial home component, diverting rainwater from your roof, siding, foundation, and landscaping. They prevent any potential damage caused by the water and are, therefore, a wise investment.

3. Pool Decking Drainage

If there is an inground swimming pool on your property, we can install pool decking drainage around the pool to help keep excess water inside the pool area. If the water doesn’t have anywhere to go, it could damage your pool deck or yard.

4. Catch Basins

A catch basin is a drainage solution that collects rainwater and redirects it away from paved surfaces and into underground drainage pipes. If you have a driveway, patio, or other low-lying area prone to standing water, this may be the ideal solution.

5. Rock Swale

A swale is a long yet shallow impression in the ground that can be lined with rock to collect and channel rainwater. They are an aesthetically pleasing drainage solution to help with water flow along your property.
