Drainage, Soil Grading and Erosion Control in Dallas:

Addressing drainage issues can involve a comprehensive solution involving catchment, pipes, and sometimes something more organic, like soil grading or utilizing rock as a slope retention measure. Dallas Drainage Pros uses precision to find the best solution to address your stormwater runoff problem. If your issue involves standing water or soil erosion, sometimes this solution is proper grading and other control measures. The Pros take great consideration into the site conditions, and you can rest assured that if soil grading, a swale or some form of erosion control is what you need, it will be done correctly.

Property Lawn and Soil Grading for Drainage

Grading a lawn or yard can be as simple as top dressing with a sandy soil mix to raise the grade slightly, or may be far more involved requiring areas to be leveled and others to be filled or lifted significantly. Dallas Drainage Pros uses a laser level to determine the appropriate answer to the question of how much is necessary to achieve the desired grade or slope. Don’t trust something like this to an eyeball estimate or guess, let the Pros let you know!

Erosion Control to Address Drainage Issues

Erosion control is often the answer where there is significant slope and no easy way to catch all the water coming from an area. While vegetation and turf are excellent sources of soil retention, these are sometimes not enough to address serious erosion concerns. Dallas Drainage Pros are the experts when it comes to choosing the appropriate solution to these issues. Riprap is a common erosion preventative measure, utilizing recycled concrete as a base Рthis is a cost-effective way to address large areas with a steep slope. Another means of slowing and directing water appropriately is to utilize river rock in strategic locations.

Swales or Dry Creek Beds for Drainage

A swale is simply an expanded grading concept where soil is lowered along a channel to direct water from one location to another. Using this method requires careful consideration for slope (1) that it is not too steep, and (2) that it won’t just become a muddy mess. One way to enhance the performance (and beauty) of a swale is to design a dry creek bed. This feature uses rock to prevent erosion and keep an area dry, while also assisting in maintaining the integrity and shape of a swale.
