Drainage Systems

Catch Basin: A catch basin is a drain with 4 walls and a solid floor. The purpose is for sand, dirt and other sediments to sink to the bottom. Any oil, gasoline, or other hazardous liquids will stay at the top of the tank, and using a T pipe only clean water will flow through a pipe leading to a drywell and drain into the earth.

Drywells: A dry well is another form of drain and unlike the catch basin it has 4 walks and an open floor. It is laid on a bed of compacted crushed gravel so water can go into the earth. Most drywells residential driveway drains are between 300-1000 gallons of capacity. In heavy rains, the flow of water into a drain may be faster than the rate at which the ground can absorb. Which is why we do drainage calculation of your driveway and possibly any roof water to be sure the open space inside the drain can handle heavy rainfall without overflowing.

Trench Drain /Line Drain / Poly Drain: In its simplest form, a trench drain provides an elongated surface for water to drain from a specific area, such as a driveway, beneath an un-guttered roof edge, sidewalk, or similar area where water tends to collect. It’s essentially a gutter that is set into the ground.

Basement Staircase Drainage Issues

If you’re getting more water in your back staircases, we jack hammer the floor out, and put a new drain in. During this process we also lower the floor so it’s not even, making it so you step up and into your basement. This gives the water 7-8 inches to rise up before it goes into your basement.

Paver Driveways

A stunning entrance to your home! Nothing compares to a paver driveway which adds a ton of curb appeal to your property. Since pavers are made using pressed concrete they can support the weight of cars and small trucks. Just like with any driveway, it is all about the base and how it is compacted. With the correct sub-base, compaction, and experience your paver driveway will last as long, or longer than traditional asphalt or concrete.

Interlocking Retaining Walls

Stone retaining walls are used to secure and hold back the soil behind it, preventing erosion and other issues from infringing on your yard. These can also be added to your yard for visual purposes, creating a more aesthetically pleasing look for the area around your home. As with pavers, retaining walls became popular in the mid-1990s. A great product, these are simple and quick to build. They are strong, neat, and sharp-looking, and are a good alternative to a classic New England stone wall.

Concrete pads

Have a hot tub ready to install? Be sure it’s placed on top of a concrete pad. It’s crucial to have a strong foundation to support the weight of the tub, water, and occupants.

Cobblestone Borders & Driveway Entrances

With that old European look, cobblestones are great attention grabbers and are typically placed at the entrance of your driveway. They really give that fantastic old-world look. We also install cobblestones along the left and right borders of a driveway to truly make the area look amazing!
