Resolving Landscape Drainage Issues: Key Signs and Solutions for May Showers

Ah, May is finally here! It brings us warm weather, longer days, and the delightful anticipation of summer. However, amidst the refreshing showers of spring, you may stumble upon a little problem in your outdoor landscape—drainage issues. But fret not! We're here to help you identify the signs and find a solution that will have your landscape looking its best.

Signs to Identify Drainage

Standing Water

Soil Erosion

Poor Plant Health


Standing Water

Like the photo above, If you spot those pesky puddles or areas of grass that seem unusually greener or yellower than the rest, you might have a drainage problem. While these signs can also be related to sprinkler leaks, it's always best to have the experts at Premier Oaks Landscape assess the situation and determine the exact cause.

Soil Erosion

Picture a mini riverbed forming in your yard due to water flowing repeatedly over the same area. That's soil erosion for you. This tends to occur more frequently in warmer climates that experience sudden, intense rainstorms. When the soil reaches its saturation point, excess water leads to erosion or standing water. Our team can help you tackle this issue and restore balance to your landscape.

Poor Plant Health

Are your once-vibrant plants looking a little under the weather? Excess water can put stress on them, causing yellowing and poor overall health. It's like they're drowning their sorrows! Keep an eye out for mulch that seems out of place or exposed roots, as they could indicate hidden standing water around your precious plants.


If any of these signs ring true for you, worry not! Premier Oaks Landscape is just a phone call away. Our team of experts will be more than happy to provide you with an estimate for an outdoor drainage solution tailored to your needs.

So, embrace the joys of May, but stay vigilant when it comes to your landscape's health. If you notice nuisance water, soil erosion, or poor plant conditions, reach out to Premier Oaks Landscape today. Schedule an appointment for a drainage solution estimate and let us restore balance to your beautiful outdoor space.

Remember, a happy landscape is a healthy landscape, and we're here to make it happen.
