In cases where the back yard flooding is an issue, we can install a Parks' back yard drainage system. Usually, it consists of a basin which is installed in the lowest spot of the yard, and drainage piping through which the water from the back yard drains toward the street.
It is important to remember that yard drains need to be installed according to your local government codes and regulations, and have to be designed so that water drainage does not cause issues somewhere else once it is drained from the flooded yard. The best way to approach the problem is to carefully inspect and examine the affected property, and then design a system that will take care of the problem. It is exactly what we do at Parks' Plumbing & Sewer, Inc.
Most yard drainage issues are defined by rain water building up near your gutter downspout, soggy areas in the yard, a stream of water that flows to a low spot, or a combination of these. To fix these issues, we will typically look to fix downspout issues, correct slope of ground next to the foundation, install downspout splash blocks or underground bubblers, install a french drain, build drywells to store excess water, and/or install a connected yard drainage systems with a pump.
