Before and after a storm hits, drainage is top of mind for many homeowners and businesses. Get ahead of the weather by preparing effective drainage solutions in your customers’ landscapes.

Here are three tips for installing effective drainage so your customers can rest easy when the weather is rough.

Avoid puddling with Flo-Well

In areas with low spots, puddling can cause major damage. Products like Flo-Well collect runoff and store it in an underground basin. From there, it can either disperse the water to other areas of a property, or hold it until it’s manually drained.

Flo-Well is lightweight and comes ready to install, making the installation process easy and efficient.

Install a French drain system with EZflow

If your project is in need of a French drain installation, consider using NDS’s EZflow product to meet your drainage needs for retaining walls, foundations, landscape installs and sports fields.

EZflow creates a French drain without the use of gravel. Not only does eliminating gravel reduce costs, it also reduces labor requirements.

Offer an alternative to drainage grates

When it comes to drainage solutions, think outside of the drain grate and offer permeable pavers for your customer’s drainage needs. 

Permeable pavers such as Xeripave pavers are not your typical hardscape application. Xeripave offers natural stone pavers (available in a variety of colors) bonded together to create segmented units, and are ideal for stormwater management, pedestrian traffic and light or heavy vehicular traffic applications.

Read more about this solution in the Xeripave blog and reach out to your local Ewing representative for more information.
