If you are in Houston and you are dealing with excess water in your yard there is an option that you would consider... A French Drainage
Sometimes your neighbor's yard stands at a higher elevation than yours and that's when you may get water runoff from your neighbor after a heavy rain. The problem is that you can't change the neighbor's land slope. You will need a better drainage in your yard to deal with all the excess water coming from the other side. That's when a French drain comes to your yard rescue. It is a common and inexpensive solution.
A French drain usually is a gravel filled trench lined with landscape fabric to keep soil and silt out of the gravel. Some types of these drains include a perforated drain pipe (called drain tile) and may be covered with grass, but the traditional French drain is simpler and easier to build and it has gravel running all the way to the surface but do not use a drain pipe, which over time is prone to get clogged anyway.
Surface water flows into the trench, where it freely moves through the gravel. So regardless of the type that's the basic function of the french drainage. The bottom of the trench is slightly sloped so the gravity carries the water to an exit point at the end of the trench. At the exit point, the water can be collected in a large swale or a dry well, or it can simply flow into a suitable drainage area or into a rain garden.
If you have a paver patio that does not have proper drainage that could result in foundation damage to your home like erosion, and a risk of proliferation of insects we can help you improve the drainage of your home’s paver patio.
How to Ensure That Your Pavers Have Good Drainage?
A patio made from pavers is a functional and beautiful addition to your property. One of the main concerns with covering the soil in your yard with a patio is the proper control of runoff from the heavy rains we could get in Houston. When your patio is built, it is important to follow some steps to ensure a proper drainage to protect your foundation from erosion and insects.
Laying a Good Base of your patio is an essential part of protecting your home’s foundation from water damage. If sand is used between each of the pavers, water will naturally percolate through it until it reaches the base. If the base consists of sufficient gravel and sand, the pavers will stay put. If the base is not thick enough, the paving stones could sink or the sand could wash out, causing shifting.
Sloping the Patio is a simple way to handle heavy rains around your patio and its base. By sloping the base material, gravity will naturally drain the water away from your home, preserving its structure. Be sure to have the base of your patio graded at a rate of one-quarter of an inch per linear foot of the patio’s surface.
Consider Installing Drains. A drain constructed of PVC pipes can be built under the paving stones and run to an area that can handle the outflow. The PVC pipes can have holes drilled into the bottom for percolation of water, or they can release the water at another location. A French drain system at the edge of your paver patio can be done on your own or hired out to the landscaping professionals. The water can be delivered to your flower beds, garden area or out to the water sewer.
