Are You Experiencing Drainage Issues On Your Property?
Have you noticed that there is water in your basement after it rains? Is there water pooling on your lawn during the rainy season? These are signs of a severe drainage issue that could lead to damage to your home and property. If water pools on the ground around your home for a long period of time without being drained, it could lead to issues like flooding in your basement. Homes that admit water through their foundation could also be overwhelmed by an abundance of water.
After a heavy rainstorm, they could allow extra stormwater to seep through the foundation and flood the basement floor or worse - the water could cause a foundation crack. A french drain will help carry water away from your home to protect your home from leaks, water damage, and flooding. Riverwood Landscape's landscaping services offer french drain installation to homeowners in the Kitchener-Waterloo region. Our team of professional contractors can visit your property to remove surface water, dig, and install a french drain. Request a free, no-obligation quote today for your drainage project!
Exterior Drain Solutions For Your Damp Basement
Sometimes a sump pump will not solve all of your drainage issues. If you have no other drainage solutions to fall back on when your power is out, your basement could be quickly flooded with stormwater. By installing infiltration galleries like a french drain, you can quickly move water away from your basement and property during a particularly heavy rainstorm. A contractor from Riverwood Landscape will avidly work to protect your home and natural areas with our french drain installation services.

Installing One On Your Property
While a french drain may look and sound elegant, the reality is that it is a functional solution for pooling water in your yard and around your home's foundation. Our highly-trained staff of landscaping professionals can create a beautiful and functional solution to your drainage issues with a carefully installed drain. We will guide you through the steps of how we install a new drainage system for our customers.
Dig A Trench
The first step in creating a new drainage system is by evaluating the landscape features in the area. This includes checking for service lines under your lawn and plotting the drain around them - We don't want to damage any service lines and cause further issues with your home! After we have checked the service area and plotted the site for the waterways, we begin digging our trench through your yard. Changes in grading (otherwise known as slope) are important to ensure that water runs away from the site. The soil in the trench will have gradual grading to make sure that water will run away from the area. The slope of your new drainage system is very slight (generally 1 inch of soil per 8 feet) and will blend in with the natural grading of your Kitchener property. The new drain will be at least 12 inches wide and 18 to 24 inches deep to ensure that it can carry plenty of stormwater away from your home.
Filling The Trench
After the trench has been dug in the ground, we lay a few inches of crushed stone or gravel along the bottom. A layer of landscaping fabric or coarse sand is then laid over the gravel to discourage weeds from growing up through your soil and into your drainage system.
Piping Your Drain
The next step is to lay piping in the drainage trench. Riverwood Landscape will either use rigid PVC with predrilled holes or flexible drain pipe cut with slits, depending on your review and request. From our experience, the PVC lasts longer and requires little repairs. It is also easy to clear any soil or roots from, making it the best option for drainage systems. Large gravel is then laid over the drain to make it aesthetically pleasing to look at. If you have stones in the landscape around your home, we can order similar ones to ensure that there is cohesion between the different areas of your front yard or backyard landscape. There is also the option to cover the drain with sod so it blends in with the rest of your lawn.
