How do I Fix Standing Water in my Yard?

Have you ever had a rain storm that left standing water in your yard? Maybe it began to pool around your home’s foundation? If water pools around your home or stays close to your home, it can cause major damage to your foundation. It can also ruin your lawn!

If you deal with standing water or soggy areas of your lawn, it can lead to having unusable areas in your yard, pests such as mosquitos, cockroaches, ants, earwigs, and certain types of spiders, and worst of all, the possibility of foundation damage.

To make sure this does not happen in the first place, you need to make sure that you have proper yard drainage. Clean, properly installed gutters are a great start. If your gutters are clogged, water will overflow and pool around your foundation. If you don’t have gutter pipes that lead away from your home, the water will stay around your home and pool. This simple system is a great start for making sure this does not happen. But you can do more!
