Yard Drainage

Most companies address water issues from the outside only. While other companies only focus on interior waterproofing. Crawl Space Ninja does both – redirecting surface and subsurface water away from your home’s foundation. We also assess water intrusion from failed footer drains or rising water tables.

Diagnosing Yard Drainage Problems

Being a waterproofing and yard drainage contractor arms us with the knowledge to assess and diagnose your yard drainage issues. While also recognizing that an exterior fix may just be part of the solution. We look at things like:
  • Standing water on the driveway
  • Water building up in the planter area
  • Downspouts that won’t drain
  • Flooded basement or crawl space
  • Slow draining water in the yard, patio or pool area

These are symptoms of poor yard drainage. Over time these problems can cause minor issues like dead grass and sopping yards but can lead to major problems like flooded basements, high humidity, mold and wood rot fungus.

Flo-Wells for Yard Drainage

Also known as a dry well, the Flo-Wells can handle extremely large volumes of water. They can also be configured in yards that are at the bottom of a hill and take rain water from the area. Flo-Wells collect, retain and discharge storm water. They offer a gravel-free solution to yard drainage problems.

The NDS Flo-Well is environmentally friendly and made from 100% recycled materials. It can be setup to filter storm water naturally through the subsurface. This can help reduce pollutants while replenishing ground water tables by discharging storm water on site.

The pop-up drainage emitter is the discharge point of your water drainage system. This products keeps mice and other small mammals from entering and clogging your drainage system. The pop-up emitter also helps beautify your lawn without creating trouble for landscapers and mowers.
The patented spring-loaded cap opens to allow water to exit and closes to secure the pipe. This is also a great product to use for sump pumps that may be located in the basement or crawl space. The pop-up drainage emitter with elbow is an easy, safe, and efficient solution to any drainage needs.

Yard Drainage and Foundation Problems

When assessing your home for yard drainage issues, there are several warning signs to look out for. Doors that stick or fail to open properly and windows that are challenging to open or seem uneven can indicate foundational shifts due to water accumulation. Visible cracks in foundation walls, exterior and interior walls, as well as in ceilings, are telltale signs of structural stress caused by poor drainage. Additionally, the separation of walls from floors, adjoining walls, and ceilings points towards the same issue. Uneven floors often result from the settling or shifting of the foundation, a common consequence of inadequate yard drainage. Lastly, the most direct sign of drainage problems is water intrusion, where moisture finds its way into places it shouldn’t be. All these symptoms suggest that it’s time to reevaluate and possibly upgrade your yard’s drainage system to protect the integrity and safety of your home.
