Living in the Pacific Northwest means that drainage is a very common consideration. Something that sets us apart from most landscaping companies is that Hone’s foreman and crews have extensive experience with drainage solutions. We install drainage systems that fix a soggy yard to systems that drain buildings and parking lots.
The most common misconception we run into is the underestimation of the process it takes to solve yard drainage problems (soggy grass, standing water, etc etc). Often times it is assumed that by throwing a drain pipe in the ground or digging a trench and filling it with rock the problem will be fixed. Sometimes the solution is this simple and sometimes not. More often than not the true problem lies in the existing soils, the sub-grade and other materials used in a landscape which are not congruent with good drainage in the Northwest.
