Is water pooling in your backyard? Is your lawn especially mushy? Is mud ruining your backyard? Then perhaps you need a drainage system installation.

These are all symptoms of a potentially greater problem. Some experts might say you have a drainage problem, while others might blame it on a broken sprinkler line. Here at Ground Source, we don't say anything until we are sure we have the problem correctly diagnosed.

If you are experiencing any of the mentioned problems, give Ground Source a call at (407) 378-5366.

Its very possible that you are experiencing a drainage issue, especially here in Central Florida where flash storms are a regularity during most of the year.

If you live on a particularly steep plot of land, with a distinct hill, you are more prone to experiencing drainage issues. Water will pool at the lowest point of your property. This is probably the indication of a drainage problem. If one section of your lawn is being inundated with an entire lawns worth of water, you will need to install some sort of drainage system to alleviate some of the stress.

It is possible to reroute some of this flooding water through use of a drainage system. One of the most popular solutions to this type of issue are French drains. French drains are non-mechanical, eco-friendly, non-intrusive drainage systems that are very effective in redirecting water. Wet climates, like that of Central Florida, demand solutions to water accumulation. French drain installation is a piece of cake for Ground Source, your Orlando irrigation and drainage experts.

Installing the proper drainage system is essential to having a comfortable, healthy, yard. Pooled water will attract more bugs, will begin to stink, and will be visually unappealing. Besides being uncomfortable, if water accumulation becomes a serious problem it can cause vegetation to die due to being over watered, and promote dangerous bacteria and amoeba growth that could potentially affect a child or pet's health. In very serious conditions, soggy earth can cause trees to fall over.
