Flowing water from drainage pipes

When rainwater doesn’t drain well on your property, it can undo all the hard work and money you’ve put into your outdoor living space. Excess water on your landscape can not only make your landscape less useable, but it can ruin its appearance and take the life of beautiful plants and flowers along the way. In some cases, poor drainage can even damage the foundation of your home.

Identifying Drainage Issues On Your Property

Not all drainage problems are obvious. Sometimes you have to look carefully for signs of excess water and drainage malfunctions. When inspecting your yard, look for these top warning signs of poor drainage:

  • Standing water after rain
  • Water pooling beneath downspouts
  • Soggy ground, or areas of growth that exceeds the surrounding area
  • Shifting soil or formation of rivulets and fissures
  • Dying grass, plants and flowers
  • Water stains on the home foundation

Options for Fixing Poor Drainage

Not all drainage issues can be fixed the same way. A professional landscaper from Mobile Joe’s can determine your best options for reversing poor drainage in your yard and guide you on the pros, cons and cost of each. In general, landscape drainage issues can be addressed in the following ways:

  • Add Amendments to Your Soil (to help retain moisture and loosen up heavy, sticky soils)
  • Clean/Repair Gutters, Downspouts and Drains (a simple fix when debris is blocking proper drainage)
  • Install Drainage System (a permanent and necessary solution when drainage issues are concerning)
  • Build a Retaining Wall (prevents erosion when poor drainage is a result of a sloped yard)

Bill O.

Joe Archer has built a great family business by treating his customer very well. They do a great job, are consistent, are reliable and are friendly. When we've had big family events, Joe takes as much pride in how our yard will look as we do...came by twice a week before a wedding to make sure things looked tops. Uses reel mowers, not rotary, to have the most even look. Use Mobile Joe!!!!

Michael DePadro

I have known Joe for over 10 years. In the past 10 years Joe has completed 3 large landscaping projects for us. My wife and I would never consider using anyone else as Joe does excellent work is dependable and is easily reached if you need to call him for anything. We can highly recommend Joe for any landscape design project or for excellent on going lawn care. Joe's team uses reel mowers so your lawn looks like a golf course fairway when his team is taking care of your lawn maintenance. I have recommended Joe to several friends who have used Joe for small landscape projects and for landscape projects that went into the six figure range. Everyone that I have referred to Joe has been very pleased with his work so give him a call if you are looking for a dependable landscaper.

David Borel

I was interviewing and getting proposals from landscaping companies for a full front yard renovation at my home. Joe by far seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced of the companies I spoke with - and the friendliest. He laid out different options to meet my budget. His prices were great as well. His team did a great job, showed up on time, and cleaned up where you could not even tell they were there - other than a complete beatiful new front yard landscape with stone walls, new plantings, grass, and trees. Looks awesome! Thanks Mobile Joe!

Mark French

Mobile Joe's Landscaping has taken care of all my landscaping needs for many years - and I highly recommend Joe and his team! Mobile Joe's has designed and implemented various landscape install projects as well as performed all the maintenance at each of the three homes I've owned in north Fulton beginning in the early 1990s. I have no doubt that Joe's expertise in both hardscape and softscape has added significant value to my properties and I'm extremely appreciative for all the attention to detail and great execution that Mobile Joe's Landscaping is known for here in the Roswell / Alpharetta area. These guys truly care about meeting and exceeding customer expectation!
