Flooding Consequences and Prevention

The winter season is creeping in. Although this time of year can be rather mild in the south, not everything is sunshine and daisies as we would prefer. Summer heat can be a miserable obstacle to overcome over the year’s course, but winter can be equally challenging. Due to a variety of climate factors, winters in our region tend to be quite wet, subsequently redirecting our attention toward potential irrigation issues in our yards. Rain is essential in certain amounts, but downpours can quickly turn from excitement to dread as our yards fill up and threaten our property integrity.

Many homes aren’t built to withstand immense amounts of water, especially considering how quickly many are created. Oftentimes, too little time has been invested in determining whether or not a property can deal with a massive influx of water. To combat this frightful scenario, make sure to consult experts who know how to handle excess water in your yard. The downside of skipping out on proper drainage can cause serious consequences.

Aesthetics are one downside to flooding. Even in small amounts, puddles in your yard can make it look unkempt and even create habitat for various nasty bugs. Your landscaping deserves better than this. Over the years, habitual puddling won’t just be unsightly though. Puddling means that your yard’s soil is completely saturated and unable to suck up any more water. Oversaturated soil with deform over time, and it can even start to degrade the foundation of your home by destabilizing it.
