With spring just around the corner, this is the perfect time of year to make sure that you are up to date with drainage solutions around your house and that you are prepared for the upcoming thaw.

Do you have melting snow in your yard?  Do you find standing water on your lawn or have you asked yourself if the drainage around your house is adequate?  These are telltale signs that you should pay attention to the drainage issues around your home.

Here is how to divert water from your house using a buried down spout in 6 steps:

  1. Determine where the water is coming from
  2. Evaluate why this is happening
  3. Decide where you can divert the excess water to; consider working WITH gravity
