Winter is coming. With all of the cold weather, shopping, and traffic, comes snow. Snow is great; it makes us think of winter wonderlands, of sitting by a fire, of building a snowman, and all things Hallmark. Did you know there can be a down side of snow? Well, besides the roads and figuring out how to entertain the kids when school gets canceled. The picturesque scene of snow can turn for the worse when that snow starts to melt.

We know how to work with Tulsa lawns and we know there are different ways to drain your lawn, so you have the best possible outcome without having to worry. There are several types of drains, a French drain, a tightline drain, or a surface drain. It can be hard to choose and you may not be sure which you need. We’ve explained each drainage system a little to get you in the right direction.
A French drain uses perforated drain pipes placed in a gravel trench. Sub-surface water uses the gravel to reach the perforated pipe easily, and the perforated pipe directs the water away to a location that is a non-problem area.
Tightline drains used buried PVC pipes with occasional openings to have water run into them. Tightline drains are an excellent irrigation system to keep water away from foundations. It is recommended to have gutter downspouts connect to a tightline system. Rainwater can go straight from the gutter and be directed away from a foundation without the added step of sitting for any period of time.
Surface drains alleviate drainage problems by creating a natural flow that pulls water away. This may include slightly changing the incline of your lawn.
