Our landscape grading and drainage services work hand-in-hand with our landscaping services. We keep your lawn protected and looking its best.

Landscape Grading and Drainage

Too much water can be extremely destructive for your yard. The Chicago area’s heavy rainfalls can seem harmless, but that’s not at all the case. Standing water can expose your family and your soil to a number of dangers and health hazards.

For example, some insects like mosquitoes tend to gather around water. If you’re fighting against water on your property, let Arbeen Landscaping take back your lawn for you! Our team can expertly level any yard and offer excavation for certain areas.

Whether you’re looking to install a new pool or pond, prevent a water catastrophe, or transform your landscaping, we are ready to get the job done. We install drainage systems that are both efficient and cost-effective.


The Importance of Drainage Systems

A drainage system helps you prevent issues like standing water and soil erosion. Some common issues you might experience without an effective drainage system include:

  • Damage to your home’s foundation and structure
  • Basement water stains
  • Mold and wood rot 
  • Damage to your hardscaping, like patios, walkways, and driveway 
  • Erosion 
  • Lawn diseases 
  • Insect infestations

Arbeen Landscaping can help you implement the right drainage solution to help you avoid the serious complications of water damage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Drains

The Chicago area’s rain, sleet, and snow can build up on an improperly prepared lawn and lead to a multitude of issues, including washed away soil, pools of stagnant water on your property, and dead vegetation. Our yard drainage services help prevent these issues and keep your lawn healthy and free of extra water.

If water is collecting in your yard, it is most likely the result of a flawed drainage system.

Drains play an important role in the functioning of your home’s outdoor space. A drain collects and disposes of excess water through perforated pipes to prevent flooding on your property.


Common Causes of Yard Drainage Issues

There are several reasons why your yard might suffer from drainage issues. Our team has found solutions for properties of all types.

Lawn Slope

Many drainage issues result from the flat slope of your yard. When it rains, water pools in the yard because the flat plane can’t divert a sufficient amount of water away from the house and property.

Short Downspout

Many homes have a downspout that is too short and doesn’t allow the water to get past the garden beds or other landscaped areas. When the rain falls directly into these areas, it collects under the mulch, builds up in the soil, and drowns your plants.

Impacted Soil

Impacted soil or contaminated soil can be caused by construction projects around your property, foot traffic, and materials moving or sitting on your land. When soil is impacted, it holds moisture a lot longer, which leads to rainfall pooling in your yard and attracting insects.

Soil Erosion from Runoff

The runoff from your downspout can result in soil erosion as it pours onto the lawn or landscaped area and strips away some of the topsoil. The erosion can lead to water collecting heavily in your yard and causing additional damage.

Yard Drainage Services

Arbeen Landscaping offers several yard water drainage solutions. We use our professional expertise and experience to determine the best drainage system for your property. Here are a few common drainage methods:

Lawn Gradation

A lawn gradation adjusts the overall slope of your yard to help ensure that water flows away from your home and doesn’t pool in one area.

Yard Basins

We can also install yard basins, also called catch basins, in the soil of your lawn to collect rainwater and drain away from your property. Yard basins help protect your basement from leaks and relieve pressure in your yard.

French Drains

French drains consist of a perforated pipe system that we install in your lawn to reduce hydrostatic pressure and drain groundwater from your property.

Yard Grading for Drainage

Drainage includes adding gradation to your lawn so that rainwater gets directed away from your property. Arbeen Landscaping can create a grading plan for your lawn to help solve your drainage issues.
