3 Reasons YOUR Yard Could Be Flooding

Rainy days can remind you of home improvement projects that you didn't even know you needed, and they're not very friendly reminders either. Discovering leaks in your basement and flooding in your yard are not fun, but they do bring to mind what you need to add to your to-do list. Paradise Landscaping and Maintenance can help you with these projects, and fix them for the long term.

If your yard is flooding, and with that your basement as well, here are a few reasons this flooding is caused, and how the best landscape company at the Lake of the Ozarks can help!

Your Gutters are Full

Now that most of the leaves have fallen from the trees, they will end up in the most unconvenient locations, like your yard and your gutters. This can be a prime cause of flooding, especially during this time of year. Your gutters are in place to direct the water to better locations, but when they're full, they block up the water and cause it to spill out where you don't want it. Get those gutters cleaned, and you may begin to notice less flooding around the base of your home. Additionally, if you still have leaves in your yard, we offer the best leaf removal at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we'd be glad to come get them out of your yard. You can check out our previous post to learn why you REALLY need to remove those leaves!

Your Drains Need to Be Directed Away From Your Home

This can be a very simple fix, with great results. If your gutters are clear, and they're working properly, they will be directing the water to the drain. If your drain doesn't head away from the home, though, it can be causing even more trouble. There are simple solutions at many home improvement stores for guiding the water away from your home.

Your Yard Needs Landscaped

When your yard hasn't been landscaped, you will have uneven areas of your yard that could be draining this rainwater right to your home. When the foundation of your home is left to soak in water, it can cause larger damages, not to mention it can also be a prime culprit in basement flooding. Our team can come take a look at your yard, the elevation, and which directions the water could be running. We can utilize garden beds, retaining walls, and other measures to re-direct the water where it won't cause damage.
