Drainage Options in Indianapolis & Central Indiana

Yard Rainage service

Normal soil, especially clay, becomes more compacted and contains less air at increasing depths. When it rains, the water pushes the air to the surface, gravity takes over, and the water then begins to flow downhill - that is, if the ground slopes. Level yards are at a disadvantage as the movement of water through the earth is minimal and heavy rainfalls cause pooling, even up to flooding levels.

The movement of sub-surface water can be increased by intercepting and re-directing its flow through a drainage system embedded in narrow trenches, sometimes called a strip drain or French drain. AkwaDrain™ functions as an excellent French Drain and is effective in eliminating the problem of standing water in low-lying areas.

How AkwaDrain™ Works

AkwaDrain is a two-part, prefabricated drain composed of geotextile fabric surrounding a polystyrene core that offers a total collection and transport system. The polypropylene filter fabric allows 80% open surface filtration of the water while restricting soil particles. The core transports the water both vertically and horizontally, whether it’s down a sub-surface wall or to a designated drainage exit.

Re-routing down spout water away from a home's foundation is an invaluable waterproofing measure. Roof water that drains and pools near the base of the house can contribute to wet crawl spaces and basements, wash away mulch and erode the landscape.

LawnScape offers underground down spout extensions that transfer rain water into a below-ground PVC pipe. Through this pipe, the water is transported on average 10' away from the foundation and terminates at a "bubbler pot" that allows it to overflow onto the surface away from the house. LawnScape extensions are customized to suit each home's design.

Product Benefits

  • Unruly ground pipes and splash blocks can be eliminated.
  • Lawn maintenance will be simplified, as mowers can be operated right over the bubbler pots without damage, much like a sprinkler head.
  • The bubbler pot cover is easily removed so any accumulated debris can be cleaned out.
