A large part of landscaping is correcting grading and drainage problems. Homes that were built from 1930-1970 typically do not have functioning drainage systems around the foundations. In addition, one of Maryland’s key environmental goals is to reduce storm water runoff, to keep hazardous chemicals from reaching local streams and the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
If you have had the unfortunate experience of discovering that you need to waterproof your basement or alleviate a drainage problem in your yard, correcting these issues will also have an important environmental benefit by mitigating storm water runoff.
We have experience implementing both interior and exterior strategies for rainwater management.
