A landscape architect, like Indigo Landscaping & Construction, is trained and uniquely qualified to incorporate the angles, slopes and elevations of your property as part of the creative design to allow for proper management of water drainage and property erosion.
Landscape grading should be considered in conjunction with your landscape design and construction plans. Grading assures that water runs away from your home and other construction by creating a slope. Slopes can be incorporated into your landscape design for both aesthetics and function, eliminating drainage problems.
Drainage can also be managed through the use of various types of piping , swales and drains. A landscape design that includes a drainage plan will ensure the beauty of your final design while improving excess water management issues that may exist.
Over time, as property changes and vegetation grows, new drainage problems can develop. Grading and drainage systems can also be introduced to correct a developing water management issue.
