St. Catharines Land Drainage
Where land is flat, soils are dense or the water table is high, a well-designed drainage system is a priority. Without proper drainage solutions in place, water may collect to undermind structures and drown expensive plants, turning parts of your landscape into perpetually wet swamps. This can be the most important issue to a landscape contractor, due to the potential for damage.
Total Contracting and Landscaping will analyze the nature of your yard, and may “shoot the grades” to establish the exact topography, no matter how flat the site may seem. Spot elevation tells where problems lie, so solutions can be solved through proper design.
Rainfall is the periodic catalyst that sets drainage problems in gear. Where heavy downpours are common, poorly drained sites can become flooded for a “short time” if drainage structures are in place (with perforated weeping tile with sock and clear stone), or “extended periods” if they are not. Add heavy rainfall to a high water table and the potential for damage increases exponentially.
