Drainage Raleigh NC

Every landscape encompasses various elements and features. Outdoor areas that are designed well and planned and installed to perfection will be well-balanced and have features such as plants, trees, masonry elements, water and fire features etc. While all of these installations are clearly visible in the landscaping, there are certain installations that work in the background, but are equally important as well.

The drainage system is also very crucial component of any landscape and we ensure that it is designed to perfection when we are handling any project. Fontaine Landscaping proudly caters to customers in and around Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. Over the years we have handled landscape designing and installation jobs for customers in Clayton, and Cary as well.

We have a large client base across Knightdale, Morrisville, Apex, and Garner, as well as Fuquay Varina. Our company has also completed a significant number of landscape drainage projects in Holly Springs, Rolesville and the surrounding areas. When we handle complete landscape design and installation projects, the drainage system installation takes place in the first phase.

Custom Drainage Solutions

These garden drainage systems have to be chosen with care and installed with expertise at the right locations. The designers make sure that every planting area, lawn space, and other areas are graded well and that the drains are installed appropriately. Aside from this, we also handle drainage system upgrade jobs for our customers.

If you have noticed water pooling in different areas of your landscape or even on the hardscaped areas, it could be an indication of a poorly-installed or malfunctioning drainage system. It’s important that the land is leveled with a slight slope leading towards the exterior of the property. Water pooling can damage the softscapes, hardscapes as well as the foundation of your home. We have the expertise to identify what the problem is and fix it satisfactorily.

Types of Yard Drains

The landscape drainage plans we draw out are custom-designed to match the needs of the landscape they are to be installed in; they could be a mix and match of:

  • French Drains - Most landscapes have a certain number of raised planters and all of these require excellent drainage; this ensures the water gets channeled towards the exterior of the property. These drains are covered with a special kind of landscape fabric and then covered with stones and rocks to improve the porosity of the ground.
  • Channel Drains - These features are installed specifically to handle patio and lawn run-off; they are the ideal for pathway, walkway and driveway drainage and are effective in directing all the excess water away from your home structure and the outdoor features in the landscape.
  • Area Drains - These are very simple features which are connected directly to a larger yard drainage network that is installed underground. They are perfect for the low-lying area in your landscape.

As a company that has been operating consistently and reliably in the Triangle for the past 21 years, we know what it takes to design and build drainage systems that will be attractive, functional and sustainable. The best products and workmanship are used in the project and this ensures the durability and longevity of the features.
