Catch Basins are used to collect surface water; they are, in essence, chambers placed underground near areas of standing water that help to drain the water. Water and solid particles enter the top of the basin through a grate. Once the water reaches a certain level it flows through the outlet trap into to piping away from your landscaping. We use a 12'x 12' (or even larger) catch basin made of polyethylene. We can also make custom basins from concrete or brick in different sizes.
Also known as trench drains, channel drains use a dominant trough or channel-shaped body that is used to rapidly evacuate surface water. Much like gutters, the channels sit above ground and allow water to be caught and move at a quicker pace away from your home or business. They are normally built parallel to the threshold of a door or garage door to prevent water from entering the home.
Dry Creek Stone Swale
Swales are used for channeling surface water flow, the swale slows down water with a positive drainage pitch, spreads it out, and allows it to sink into your soil. A dry creek stone swale is lined with our geotextile fabric and stapled to the earth using sod staples; then round stones are used to create an aesthetically pleasing solution that mimics the look of a creek bed. The stones disperse the energy of water and slow down the rate of dispersion.
