Q: Hello Associate Landscaping. It recently rained here in Benicia for roughly eight days in a row and the soil was saturated, so our backyard got flooded big-time. How can we prevent this from happening again in the future, because this is a mess!
A: First off, our condolences. A flooded yard is a real pain and it can lead to further problems down the road if you don’t deal with the issue promptly. Having a lovely yard is the dream of every homeowner. But without proper drainage this can all be under water with just one rain shower. The chances of this happening will increase if your home is located at the base of a slope. If the water in your yard does not drain out fast enough, it might even flood your house at some point.
