Time and time again, you may or may not come across an alarming amount of excessive water in your yard. This may be due to a plumbing leak, heavy rain, or a wide range of factors that are out of your control.

Though this small flooding of water in your yard may seem unnecessary of attention, it’s important to note the dangers of having standing water in your yard for a long amount of time. By having excessive amounts of water in your yard, it may result in damage to your yard or landscape, increased mosquitoes, as well as the chance that dangerous bacteria within the water could harm you or your family. But here are a few answers to the ultimate question that you may ask when faced with this problem: “What do I do?”

The first solution to this problem is to call a qualified professional to help you in this situation. Depending on the reason behind this excessive buildup of water in your yard, our technicians at Drain Master can help you to inspect and determine the reason behind the water in your yard. If it’s a plumbing issue, they provide fast and affordable pipe repairs to quickly solve this problem.

Another solution, which is a homemade method, is to self install a drain in your yard to quickly remove any standing water in your yard now and in the foreseeable future. To install a drain, such as a french drain that can effectively drain your yard of any excess water, you first need to dig a small trench where the water is pooling.

Next, add a bed of gravel to the bottom of the trench. Then, insert a pipe that can be used as a drain below the layer of gravel so the top of the pipe is covered with gravel. Make sure to leave one or both ends of the pipe open so water can flow into it. Finally, cover the top and sides with more gravel. If that seems difficult to follow, you can always call a professional to install a drain in your yard so you can avoid your yard filling up with water again.

If you’re stuck with your yard flooded and don’t know what to do, call Drain Master today so your yard can be drained but your wallet won’t.
