While water running through your yard during rainstorms isn’t ideal, neither is having massive puddles or a flooded yard. This is not only uncomfortable when you want to walk around your own space. It can cause problems for your grass and family too.
If you get a lot of standing water after it rains, then your grass can suffer from overwatering. This means that any nutrients in the soil are going to be diluted by the excess water. Then your grass won’t grow as well because it’s not getting the nutrients it needs.
It also can lead to plant diseases. When you overwater any plant, there’s always a risk of root rot, for example.
Finally, standing water is an ideal place for mosquitos to lay their eggs. So yards that have plenty are going to have a lot more issues with them. This can also lead to your family risking getting diseases like Zika or West Nile.
So it’s essential to make sure that there’s no standing water in your yards after heavy rains. Lawn drainage systems are an excellent way to ensure that your yard and family are safe and healthy in your yard. It keeps the nutrients in your soil and mosquitos out of your yard.
