Water drainage, while sometimes overlooked, is one of the most important factors to consider when improving your landscaping. If you can’t control drainage by moving water over the surface of your landscape, structural devices can be used to make water go where you want. These photos show an example of a drainage system incorporated into a new driveway to efficiently remove an overabundance of water. The drainage system uses a trench drain that runs  the entire width of the driveway. This shallow trench drain collects rainwater and snowmelt as it moves toward the garage and diverts it before getting inside the structure This abundance of water can then empty into your nearby plantbeds for extra watering purposes. Drainage systems such as this are a great idea to keep your landscaping functioning properlyand help reduce the amount of runoff to the storm sewer system.  Ground One Enterprises can help you with all your drainage questions.
