Precast Concrete Drainage Wall

IMG_9650Our clients were having a serious storm water runoff issue as their property sat lower than all of the neighboring properties, which resulted in standing water and constant saturation of the lawn. A deteriorating timber retaining wall and a failing drainage system along the perimeter of the property was the source of the problem. We found that the most efficient way to manage the excessive overflow of water would be to replace the timbers with a drainage wall that would direct the water around the house. The homeowners wanted a long-term solution so we suggested installing a beautiful “Belgard” precast concrete block wall. To manage the saturated lawn, we installed a french drain that we were able to connect to the wall’s drainage system. Shortly after completion of the project, the lawn was no longer saturated and the yard became usable immediately after a rain event.
