You can count on the trained professionals of Lucky Lawn Drainage to correct any lawn drainage problems you’re having which can include:

  • Wet basement
  • Excess standing water
  • Wet, brown grass
  • Muddy patches
  • Soil erosion and more

Do you know that approximately 70% of the water from your gutters ultimately ends up in your basement? When gutters drain to close to the foundation, water can work its way into the basement through tiny cracks or porous walls causing flooding and/or causing your sump pumps to work twice as hard as necessary.

The right solutions
Lucky Lawn Drainage will diagnose the problem, talk with you about the best solution, custom-design your drainage system and professionally install the right products with minimal disruption to your lawn including:

  • Surface drains
  • French Drains
  • Dry wells and more

When your solution is complete, drains can quickly capture and transfer water away from one location to another, solving your drainage issues!
