Drainage issues can significantly effect plant health, and can also effect the usability of your outdoor space. Unwanted guests, like mosquitoes, can become a nuisance if drainage issues aren't properly addressed and drainage issues are often the culprit behind significant, costly problems with your home's foundation like cracks and settling. Too much water is often the demise of otherwise healthy plants, trees and turf. Unfortunately, many contractors overlook important drainage issues and many “pick-up truck" landscapers don't have the knowledge and/or means to properly assess surface or subterranean drainage issues. When assessing your property, our professional staff pay careful attention to the grade of your property, your home's downspouts and the percolation rate or “perk" of your soil. We also understand the distinctions between seepage drains and storm drains, and when to use them. Knowing the “when's" and “how's" of drainage work is paramount to its success and proper drainage is the building block of a quality, usable outdoor space.
Water is one of the most important elements to a successful landscape. Many factors must be taken into account to assess the practicality of installing an automatic irrigation system: The size of your property, amount of plant material, the amount of sun and shade relative to watering zones, soil percolation (the ability of water to move up and down in soils), the type of plants involved and your busy schedule. Clinton Korfhage Landscaping can help design and install a high quality, cost-effective system that will benefit your property for years and pay for itself many times over.
