There are two main sources of water that must be considered. The first is surface water, which comes directly from rain, ending up on the land. The second actually is from rain also, but in this case it hits the roof of the house, running into the gutters.
These gutters, which can collect a large amount of rainwater, connect to leader pipes usually attached to house corners. And where does this water end up, on your property also. Water can pool on your property. Not only is this annoying, but it can be bad for plants. It can also be a breeding place for mosquitoes.
Water can also seep towards your house, causing water to seep into the basement, or even the house itself. All of this water must be channeled properly. There are various methods of doing so. The best method depends on your particular setting and land contouring.
