When To Install?
After experiencing rainfall during the winter, it is wise for homeowners to take advantage of the summer to install or repair their drainage systems in summer because of a number of reasons. Installing or repairing drainage systems in the summer has its own advantages over installing or repairing them in winter such as having fewer inconveniences and knowing the areas that experienced the most problems in the winter and repairing them.
The biggest benefit to installing or repairing your drainage system in the summer is the little to no inconvenience that occurs during the process of repairing or installing of the drainage system. Some of these inconveniences which occur in winter but less likely to occur in summer include constant rain which halts the work from going further, the soil is much drier and easier to work within summer than it is in winter.
Yet another reason to install a drainage system in the summer is because the majority of homeowners tend to believe that destructive flooding on their properties can only occur during winter but that is far from the truth and it usually ends up costing the homeowners a lot of money before realizing that the sprinkler or garden hose can actually cause a lot of damage to their property if they don’t have adequate drainage. Sprinklers and hoses can flood your yard if left unattended for long periods of time and eventually cause big problems such as foundation damage. Damage to your curb appeal is another problem that flooding brings about. Floods tend to kill plants by drowning them, therefore, damaging the curb appeal that the buses or flowers provide for your yard.
