Your landscape has drainage issues if excess water is pooling or dripping in places where it should not be. Although it does not cause any significant damage yet, it is important to act on it immediately. These are the types of landscape problems that require immediate attention because they may cause more damage to various parts of your outdoor living area, such as your plants and other structures on your property. Also, evident water issues on your landscape may only be a symptom of the worst problem underneath.
Possible Consequences of Drainage Issues
Ignoring any sign of drainage issues in your outdoor landscape area may cause more serious problems. Here are some of the possible consequences associated with poor or defective drainages:
- Structural Damage - although water affects soil, it can also affect any structures built on the soil. When soil erosion occurs, a structure may start to collapse or break because of the lack of support for the foundation.
- Plant Drowning and Root Disease - plants need water, but too much water, like floods, could drown them. Standing water attracts insects and molds which could be lethal to the health of your plants. Also, excess water can expose the roots of your trees and plants to fungal diseases.
- Bug Increase - mosquitoes breed on standing water, and if your landscape drainage is not fixed at once, they may multiply and harm not only you but your family and neighbors as well.
