Considering surface runoff is the most common drainage problem, adjusting the grade is primarily the recommended drainage solution.
Ensuring a positive pitch away from the home is very important. To control this or pooling lawn areas, the creation of an efficient swale may be required. By directing the water off the property, we can prevent pooling (breeding ground for mosquitoes) and help make your yard more enjoyable.
An efficient use of a drain tile system (a.k.a French Drain) or a catch basin are an excellent approach to supplement the benefits of proper grading. A 4″ perforated drain tile back-filled with limestone chips will absorb seepage (underground water) under the center of a swale or other appropriate areas. Considering these pipes may freeze in a typical Wisconsin winter, they should be used as a secondary drainage solution.
