Making sure you have a good outdoor drainage system for your New Jersey home is essential. The main causes for problems with excessive water are from heavy storms that cause extreme run off from roofs and gutters, uphill neighboring properties and also natural springs. All of these conditions can be solved by an EcoSystems outdoor drainage system. We can evaluate the current condition of your property and offer solutions to solve the problems.
Every soil type has different properties that affect its drainage. Pore space controls soil drainage characteristics. In other words, drainage problems often arise from lack of large-sized pores. In soils dominated by large pores (i.e., sandy soils), water moves rapidly. In comparison, in soils dominated by small-sized pores (i.e., compacted soils and soils with greater than 20% clay content), water is slow to move or may not move at all. Well-drained soil is a key factor in growing healthy plants in your yard or garden. If soil is poorly drained, water from rainfall or sprinklers will collect on the soil’s surface. Plant roots can then become submerged in water or even freeze in colder temperatures, leading to damaged roots or plants that will not bloom.
