When it comes to making sure that the excess water on your lawn drains properly, there really is only one solution, to install a drainage system. While they may be expensive and require you to maintain them, they offer so many benefits as well. Some of the advantages of a drainage system include:
Prevents Water Accumulation
Too much accumulated water on your lawn can lead to flooding which can in turn kill your plants. Additionally, excess water that just sits on top of land can create an environment that encourages mosquitoes to breed.
Reduces Soil Erosion
Stagnant water can make soil muddy which will cause it to erode. A drainage system can maintain how much moisture is in your soil so you are getting the proper amount.
Removes Toxic Materials
When the conditions permit, flash flooding can occur. Often, flash floods bring contaminated water near your home. A drainage system can solve this problem by draining the toxic materials away from your yard.
