Soils are dense or the water table is high where your land is flat. Thus, a well-designed drainage system is a priority. Without proper drainage solutions, water gets accumulated to undermine structures and drown expensive plants. It can turn parts of your new landscape into wet swamps.
A surface drainage is a solution. Allow professional Bolton landscaping services to create a new drainage plan utilizing surface grading to ensure there is enough fall to drain.
Another solution can be the age-old French drain. It will gather water and permits an underground place where it may take its time seeping in down through dense soils.
Designing an underground drainage can solve the issue. Ask for a site-wide grading and drainage plan that comes with an underground system of pipes. The pipes are fed by drop inlets or trench drains. There are easy to install plastic piping. It will easily allow the water to move off-site and directly into the storm drain.
You might feel such drainage costs more to install, but it pays for itself.
The best solution will be riparian species. Try local fens, bogs, and swamps that can naturally adapt to your climate and soils. The trees from similar wetlands somewhere else in the world are also great. They will offer more diversity as compared to what is native to local plant communities.
Another solution for high water table landscapes is to raise the planting areas. It is an expensive but effective option. Raised planter heights can differ depending on what the designer wants to grow there.
Remember: Groundwater can also play a vital role in drainage. It is directly related to rainfall patterns. The water table can be just inches below the surface in the low lying areas. Conditions like these create all sorts of problems for construction and limit planting options.
Wherever there are heavy rainfalls, poorly drained sites are prone to get flooded for a short time if drainage structures are in place or extended periods if they are not.
