A soggy yard can create severe issues for your grass and landscaping. Not only that, but the pools of water that form in your yard can allow mosquitoes to breed, and that makes enjoying your outdoor spaces difficult. If you notice constant puddles of water forming when the rainy season hits, you probably have a grading problem.
Grading problems aren’t something the average homeowner can tackle on their own. You don’t have the right tools and knowledge to grade your yard. So who do you call? The answer is a landscaping team specializing in ground leveling and drainage management.
Before calling a professional landscaper, you may want to try to do your own fix for your yard grading problem. If the problem is small, you might be able to do this independently. First, check your downspouts and gutters to see if that is the issue. Then, if you have a yard drainage system already in place, connect your downspouts to this to move the water away from your house.
If the downspouts are not the issue, then the actual slope of your yard is probably the problem.
Improper sloping requires professional grading from a qualified landscaping team. Trying to tackle this on your own without the right tools will leave you frustrated.
Yard grading means changing the pitch of the yard so that water flows naturally away from your yard based on gravity. Your landscape contractor will find the high and low points of the yard, then will calculate the rise between these. Using specialty equipment, they will build up low points and level high points to create an even surface that gradually slopes away from your yard to funnel the water where it needs to go naturally.
Because yard grading requires careful calculation and the right equipment, you’re going to want professional help with this process.
