One of the most popular drainage solutions we have been implementing in our area is a modified French drain. This involves connecting flex pipes to downspouts and diverting water away from the house, likely to the lowest point in the yard such as a common area where other homes are also draining. The idea is to move the water to an unused space. Though that unused space remains soggy, the rest of the yard can dry out properly.
Gutter downspouts often have more of an impact than people realize. So often homes are built with downspouts that drain directly at the home’s foundation. By extending those downspouts out, even just a little bit farther, it can make a huge difference in preventing water from pooling at the home’s foundation and causing trouble.
