Whether you need a drainage system installed or repairs done to your current system, our professional team is here to help.

Installation

To be able to benefit from a great drainage system, the first step is installation. Although there is a wide range of systems out there available for landscapes, one of our prime recommendations consists in French Drains. It is appreciated as the most popular and efficient form of outdoor draining especially thanks to its mechanism: instead of spreading the water within the landscape itself, a French drain leads the water to a drain. Most often, the French drain works as a perforated pipe that is enclosed by gravel. The pipe is then bundled with filter fabric in order to keep it clean and mud-free.

Tight line drains

Tight line drains are commonly known as piping systems made from PVC, which have glued connection joints. It is important for tight line drains to connect catch basins and downspouts, as they redirect water from the foundation. They present a series of advantages, as they are very resistant and can have quite a long period of perfect functionality. Even more so, tight line drains have demonstrated a much better flow when heavy rain occurs in the area, also being reputed for their self-cleaning properties. This means that various kinds of debris simply wash out of the system, so maintenance ultimately becomes less time-consuming. Lastly, this form of drainage has less chances of being damaged by any external factors, such as an automobile accident.

Grading for positive surface water drainage

One of the most important aspects for positive surface water drainage is definitely grading. It is a necessary process for preventing toxic waste from washing into a storm drain (and then into the ocean), but also for the irrigation of plant beds. It is a responsible way to drain a landscape and protect the environment at the same time. Our team is fully equipped and prepared to offer the best grading services for positive surface water drainage.

Sump Pumps

Sump Pumps are essential for removing water that has gathered in a sump basin meant to collect water. They are a key element for redirecting water away from undesired areas and into designated spaces, such as a storm drain. The Super Scapes team not only provides sump pumps, but also tends to their installation and maintenance.
