Drainage & Erosion Control

Private Landscape, Marietta, GA: Drainage workLack of effective drainage can be destructive to any property.  Uncontrolled water run-off easily penetrates wall foundations and erodes soil and other landscaping.  Steps to proper drainage typically include proper connection of all downspouts to drainage pipelines.  This eliminates drainage problems at the foundation of residences or buildings and prevents the puddling of water.  We can also incorporate drainage lines to carry water to catch basins and/or away from the buildings.  Landscape grading can also be a valuable and effective tool in managing run-off water.   

We have a Senior Geotechnical Engineer on staff that specializes in all aspects of drainage and erosion control. 

These areas of expertise also include:

  • French Drains
  • Dry Stream Beds
  • Stone Drainage Swale Areas
  • Waterproof Foundations (Residential & Commercial)

Private Landscape is also adept at remediating sink holes/trash pits.  These typically occur when a contractor has buried trash and other debris within your property.  Over time, the weight of the soil and plant material can cause the area to collapse.  We will completely dig out the accumulated debris, refill and properly compact the hole, then create a new level landscape area.
