Drainage is another landscaping issue that typically gets overlooked or treated as an after-thought. Proper water management is not only one of the first issues that should be considered when designing a landscape, but most towns require that a formal grading plan be submitted to the township engineer for review for larger projects.
Due to suburban development, many townships have introduced ordinances limiting the amount of impervious coverage (patios, walks, structures, driveways, etc) that can be placed on lot. Some may require drywell installations to help capture the run-off from the new additions to your property.
We are well versed in the various methods to capture water and re-charge the ground water, in accordance with town requirements. We can help recommend the best solution for your yard to resolve an existing issue or prevent a new issue when changing the landscape. And if necessary, we also have relationships with local engineers that we can bring in to develop a grading plan or design a storm water management system.
