Did this year’s April showers bring May flowers to your garden? National Water a Flower Day is May 30th, and now is a great time to pay some extra attention to the water on your property. Maryland’s humid and rainy climate helps keep landscapes green and lush, but excessive downpours can give your garden too much of a good thing. Drainage is vital for all kinds of Maryland properties, and homeowners must consider how additions to their landscape can impact their property’s drainage. Consider revamping your landscape’s drainage with products from your local supply store.
Why Balanced Moisture Levels are Vital (and How Your Supply Store Can Help)
Overly dry conditions can kill plants, but too much water isn’t good, either. Excessive moisture can allow fungal diseases to take hold in your lawn, and unmanaged runoff can cause problems for your home’s foundation and nearby waterways. If you notice standing water on your property (particularly near the base of your home), visit your local supply store. Lehnhoff’s Supply has a wide range of drainage solutions to help you divert water appropriately.
Visit Your Supply Store for Drainage Solutions
Homeowners have many tools at their disposal in the fight for better drainage. French drains, grates, and channel and trench drains are popular solutions for Maryland homeowners. Creating a well-designed drainage system on your property is vital and combining features like trench drains and pop-up drain emitters is a great way to ensure that your garden doesn’t become a swampy, muddy mess. Lehnhoff’s Supply is proud to offer products from NDS, a leading manufacturer in drainage products.
Natural Stone Improves Drainage and Visual Appeal
Natural stone is another valuable tool used to improve drainage. Gravel and crushed stone are popular components in French drains, and EP Henry Permeable Pavers are ideal for patios and driveways. Natural stone products can be used to both improve drainage and add a unique visual element to your property’s design. Complement stone drainage features with landscape boulders and arrangements of natural stone.
