Drainage is the flip side of irrigation – if your landscape lacks good drainage, areas can become swampy or pool up. Even if you don’t see areas that are remaining wet, simply having excessive moisture conditions- areas that don’t dry out sufficiently between waterings- can cause serious problems for your landscape, such as root rot.
Most plants have roots which need fresh air. It is the pumping action of wet/dry cycles that exchange the air in your soil. Soaking pushes the air out of your soil. As your soil absorbs and drains after a soaking rain or irrigation cycle, it draws in fresh air.
Our landscape specialists can solve your poor drainage problems, recover wet soggy areas, and even redirect water to areas where it will be useful. Call us at 912-964-0059 to request a drainage consultation.
