The unpredictability of weather often contributes to the sporadic issues related to flooding or ponding of water. In addition, the craftsmanship of your home, grading or settling of your lawn can also lead to drainage issues associated with both rain water or the water within your home and in your basement.
While puddles of standing water may not seem like the most pressing concern, a properly-designed drainage system is critical in successful landscape design and health of your lawn. If you’re concerned about whether or not you need to change up your approach, call Rhine Landscaping at 410-442-2445 or send us a message with questions.
