Rockland County NY Homeowners: Get Ahead of Yard Flooding in 2019

May 15, 2019 |

The summer of 2018 was brutal. It seemed like all it did was rain—and sometimes that rain just poured out of the sky.

Were you frustrated every time you watched as your lawn and landscape went under water? Now’s the time to get ahead of the rain game this year.

2018 Came In Second for Wettest Summer

According to Hudson Valley Weather, the summer of 2018 was wet. The summer of 2011 is still in first place due to Hurricanes Irene and Lee with a total of 22.97” of rain. And yet, the summer of 2018 came in second with 21.34” of rain.

Given that no one knows if 2019 will be wetter or drier than 2018, it’s crucial for you to get a head start for preventing your lawn and landscape from going under this summer.

Take the chill out of NY spring nights with a fire pit or an outdoor fireplace.

Spring is the Perfect Time for Property Flooding Prevention

If you’re tired of your Rockland County or Bergen County lawn and landscape flooding, then it’s time to talk about yard drainage. Yard drainage solutions include

  • Grading
  • Corrugated plastic tubing
  • Dry river or stream beds
  • Dry well systems
  • French drains
  • Retaining walls
  • Swales.

If you think these landscaping drainage ideas will just rip up your lawn for installation and then it’s back to a regular yard, you’re wrong. Dry riverbeds, retaining walls and even grading, open up landscaping possibilities that take your property to the next level.

A New Way to Think About Yard Drainage

If you’re dreading the mess that’s involved with a lawn flooding drainage project, think again. You could create new landscape beds, a patio or a fountain to include in your project.

Yes, you still have to deal with the mess. But you can look forward to something enjoyable after the project is finished. Here are some ideas to get you brainstorming:

  • If you need to have your yard graded to install drainage pipes and drains, why not consider finishing the project up with a new patio or landscape bed?
  • If your landscape contractor is installing a dry riverbed, take the design up a notch with a waterfall, woodland flowers and pathways leading to your riverbed escape.

Here are 10 ways Majestic Lawn Care and Landscape can take your NY/NJ lawn and landscape to the next level in 2019.

  • If you’re installing a dry well, why don’t you invest in a rain garden too? You’ll invite interesting wildlife to your backyard as well as use moisture-loving plants such as ferns, hostas, evergreens and other native plants. Pick out interesting rocks and stones native to New York and northern New Jersey to give a woodland effect to your Rockland County or Bergen County front- or backyard.
  • If you’re installing a retaining wall, use stone over brick, add landscape lighting and a fountain. Moving water is soothing to the soul, and you’ll enjoy your retaining wall at night as well as during the day.
