Ground Saturation

The Problem

The ground around your home is wet. It hasn’t rained in days, but your yard is still saturated with water.

Significant ground saturation makes it hard to enjoy your outdoor spaces. Whether water is pooling next to your foundation or just creating soggy conditions around your property, it’s a nuisance. In many cases, it creates a breeding ground for mosquitos.
The Problem

The Cause

Poor grading causes most ground saturation around homes in metro Atlanta. Our clay soil also tends to hold water, especially in flat areas. Inadequate grading in conjunction with the local soil composition is a recipe for nuisance ground saturation.

While a lack of French drains, catch basins, or other stormwater collection equipment certainly contributes to the problem, grading is often the culprit. To truly address the problem, you usually have to restructure the surrounding landscape – a big undertaking.

For these reasons, it’s difficult to completely eliminate ground saturation. While certain drainage products will improve the problem, significant progress often requires significant measures.
