Why Build A Drainage Swale Around Your Home

Yard drainage system Northern VA

The Northern Virginia area is known for having heavy rains that can turn a trickle into a flood. On top of erosion damaging property, tree roots can be exposed and mulch beds can wash away. Not only can this leave your yard in poor shape, but it can be a hazard as well. We recommend working with a professional yard drainage system expert if you’re getting more rain than you can handle.

At Drainage & Erosion Solutions, our team is experienced in creating drainage systems that are both proactive defense mechanisms and aesthetically pleasing landscaping elements. Our Project Managers have years of experience with the strategy and installation behind effective drainage swales that will stabilize soil, prevent washouts, and much more.

What is a Drainage Swale?

Drainage swales are naturally integrated into a landscape as shallow ditches that are sloped to allow sufficient drainage to occur. It works alongside gravity, effectively collecting excess water in order to channel it away. Drainage swales can also reduce stormwater runoff or be connected to a rain tank as an ecofriendly and utilitarian water source.

In comparison to other drainage systems, swales are also known to be more cost-efficient and low maintenance.
