Landscaping and Drainage:

How They Work Together

General Information

Many of the calls we receive are from homeowners that are getting water in their basements. This is almost always caused by outdoor water and, in most cases, could be resolved by making sure all water around the foundation flows away. About 90% of the time, there is an area near the foundation that allows water to accumulate and to sit next to the foundation of the building.

Regrading surface landscape and turf areas will allow water to naturally flow away from your house. Collecting gutter water and releasing it 15 feet from your house often makes a drastic difference as the grades at 15 feet from the house are generally much lower and allow water to continue its natural flow away.


Since 1993, American Lawn & Landscape, Inc. has provided full services for its customers and their landscape needs, including proper drainage. We provide drainage solutions that give proper flow of water away from the main building structures.


We do three main types of drainage:

Gutter Solutions, French Drains, and Mud Jacking.
