Understanding the root causes of a wet yard is the first step toward effective resolution. Several factors can contribute to poor yard drainage, including:

  1. Heavy Rainfall: Portland's frequent and heavy rains can quickly saturate the soil, leading to standing water and soggy lawns.
  2. Clay Soil: Clay-heavy soils are dense and have poor drainage properties, making it difficult for water to percolate through the ground.
  3. Improper Grading: If your yard slopes toward your home rather than away from it, water can accumulate around the foundation, leading to basement flooding and foundation damage.
  4. Compacted Soil: Over time, soil can become compacted due to foot traffic, heavy machinery, or natural settling, reducing its ability to absorb water.
  5. Blocked or Broken Drains: Clogged or damaged drainage systems can prevent water from flowing away from your property, resulting in pooling and flooding.

    Our Solutions for Your Wet Yard Problems in Portland, OR

    French Drains

    French drains are one of the most effective solutions for managing excess water in your yard. These systems consist of a trench filled with gravel or rock and a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from your property. Here’s how French drains work:

    • Water Collection: The trench collects excess water from the surface and underground.
    • Filtration: Gravel and rock filter out debris, preventing clogs in the perforated pipe.
    • Water Transport: The perforated pipe, installed with a slight slope, directs water away from problem areas to a safe discharge point.

    French drains are particularly useful for properties with poor grading or clay-heavy soils. They can be installed around your home’s foundation, in low-lying areas of your yard, or along retaining walls to alleviate hydrostatic pressure and prevent water damage.

    Drain Cleaning

    Regular drain cleaning is crucial for maintaining effective yard drainage. Over time, drains can become clogged with leaves, dirt, and other debris, impeding the flow of water and causing backups. Our drain cleaning services ensure that your drainage systems are free of blockages and function properly.

    • Inspection: We use advanced camera inspection tools to identify blockages and assess the condition of your drains.
    • Clearing: Our team employs high-pressure water jetting and mechanical augers to clear out clogs and debris.
    • Maintenance: Regular maintenance schedules help prevent future blockages and keep your drains in optimal condition.

    Sump Pumps

    For areas prone to significant water accumulation, sump pumps provide an effective solution to prevent flooding. Sump pumps are installed in a sump pit, typically located in the basement or crawl space, and work by automatically pumping out excess water when it reaches a certain level.

    • Installation: We assess your property to determine the best location for the sump pump and install it professionally to ensure reliable operation.
    • Types: We offer both submersible and pedestal sump pumps, depending on your specific needs and preferences.
    • Maintenance: Regular maintenance and inspection of your sump pump system ensure it functions correctly during heavy rains and flooding events.
