Water, slope and drainage

GALA grand award winner

Sloping side yard causes drainage problem.

Unique Environmental Landscapes - drainage solution

This homeowner called us in to address a significant drainage issue. Their relatively small and compact yard had a significant right to the left slope, all wedged between large homes. The upper neighbor’s water flowed into their side yard and formed a pool of water with every rainfall.

Our first task was to incorporate downspouts into a drainage system and build a dry creek bed to manage the water flow. Before starting plant placement, we limbed up the Leyland Cypress to expand the narrow space and bring in more light.

The homeowner can now use all areas of the space due to walkways, drainage solutions, and new patio area.
