The right drainage solution alleviates problems with the foundation of your home and other structures on your property, and prevents cracking, uneven shrinkage and swelling. A good patio design often includes a drainage solution so that water is drained away in order to avoid standing water that can cause slippery surfaces, mosquito breeding grounds and drowned landscaping.

  • French Drains
    A French Drain helps keep water away from the foundation of your home by directing water from a higher area where your garage or home may sit to a lower one. A French Drain can – and should – be constructed with environmentally friendly materials that are also wallet friendly.

    French Drains can be a particularly effective drainage solution if your home or property has chronic drainage issues or any of the following symptoms:
    • You experience garage or basement flooding on a regular basis
    • Your yard has a retaining wall situated on a hill side
    • Your yard remains soggy with standing water after a rain storm
  • Retaining Walls
    • Gravity Retaining Walls are constructed primarily with concrete or stone – much thicker at the buried base than at the top - to help increase the stability of the surrounding soil.
    • Wood Wall / Anchored Walls use underground wood or concrete beams to anchor the retaining wall
    • A Cantilevered Retaining Wall is similar to a Gravity Retaining Wall, but use less building material due to the concrete base at the frost line.
    • A Sheet Pile Retaining Wall uses plank walls constructed of wood or steel that are anchored to the retaining wall using cables beneath and behind the retaining wall.
