Drainage Solutions

Home Drainage Solutions for Citizens of Hillsborough

Maintaining a well-drained yard is an important task for all homeowners. Heavy storms can leave behind a lot of water, so if you do not have a way to properly drain excess stormwater you could run into a lot of trouble. If the water cannot be drained it may flow towards your house, and this can either flood your basement or damage the building’s foundations. In addition, the pools of water left behind by storms can either damage your lawn or attract a mosquito infestation. Hillsborough Irrigation offers a wide variety of drainage installations that can prevent these problems from happening. Our experts will walk you through the process and will help you select the best drainage solution for your yard. Once your choice has been made we will send our landscaping team to your house to begin the installation.

Our drainage solutions are guaranteed to get rid of excess stormwater, even during the harshest of weather conditions. Typically, it is a good idea to install a drainage solution during the summer, since it will be easier to dig up the soil when it is dry. This would also be wise because it can help protect your landscape from dangerous hurricanes.

The pipe will then transport the excess water away from your property. Dry Well – An underground well that captures rainwater. These wells have holes in them that help the water soak into the ground after is has been collected.
