Is the space you've allotted for gardening overly saturated with water? Worse yet, is excessive moisture threatening the integrity of your house foundation? We can help improve yard's drainage.
Poor drainage can lead to property damage and unusable land. Our drainage experts can help find a solution to drain the water away; for instance, by using French drains.
French Drain installation
From the Palace of Versailles to the Cote d’Azur, France is known for its beautiful gardens. Regardless of where French drains may have originated, they are an ideal drainage solution for homeowners from Paris to St. Louis. A typical French drain system is made up of perforated drainpipes that are covered in the landscaping material a homeowner chooses. Protected by this outer layer of covering, French drains are not susceptible to damage caused by soil and roots. Another feature of the French drain that makes it amenable to many homeowners is the option a homeowner has to cover the pipe’s covering with grass, gravel, or mulch.
A popular option for homeowners looking for an underground drainage solution, channel drains can be easily integrated into any home pipe system. If you have a pool in your yard, then a channel drain may be a good option, as it can help prevent problems associated with pool water overflow.
Dry Creek Bed installation
If there is only one section of your yard that is consistently afflicted by flooding, then you may be able to avoid installing a comprehensive drainage system by digging a small channel and filling it in with stones or gravel. This will improve water absorption in the area, and it will provide your family with a temporary creek to admire in your backyard after heavy rains.
Many St. Louis lawns are inordinately flat. Have a landscaper grade your lawn so that it has a slope of one or two percent and you can avoid most problems associated with poor drainage. Once your lawn has been correctly graded, rainwater and other drainage will naturally flow away from your garden.
Feel free to contact us for an online estimate right now.
We look forward to hearing from you today!

What lawn? What flower beds? I don’t ever have to think about them! The crew at Bid Bend takes care of my landscape as though it were their own. Lawn treatments and fresh mulch in the Spring along with clean-up and trimmings are magically done when the first bulb pops its head. In the Summer, my lawn is kept the best looking on the block, and in the Fall, leaves are just gone along with gutters and flower beds cleaned. Occasionally, I have special requests, which Pat and Brad immediately sc…

Just wanted to let you know how happy I am. Brad and your crew were here this morning and when I came home for lunch they had removed all of the leaves, cut the grass, edged the walk and driveway…they did everything! The yard looks great! I am so happy I don’t have to waste any more weekends raking and mulching leaves. Seriously it would have taken me at least two full weekends working all day Saturday and Sunday to do what your guys did this morning. Thanks so much!
