Courtyard / Streetscape Drainage

Courtyards, courtyard gardens and streetscapes all have unique drainage needs. Many of the decisions that have to be made about the type of drainage depends upon the slope and surface area that is solid vs. green space for water to naturally soak into. Without the proper drainage solution issues with erosion, pooling water and structural damage to nearby buildings can occur.

 

 

3 Considerations

  • 1.
    Trees, Leaves & Debris

    The type of greenery near the trench drain system will need to be thoughtfully considered. Some foliage can create seasonal debris that can quickly clog drains.

  • 2.
    Great Grates

    Enhance the project appeal with decorative grates or go for a basic look that is hidden in plain sight. Either way, consider what kind of traffic the grates will see. Vehicular and pedestrian traffic will have different requirements. Contact our experts who will guide you to the perfect grate.

  • 3.
    Converging Flows

    Don’t forget about the possibility of additional storm water flow. Connected sidewalks, downspouts, streets and driveways can create an additional amount of rainfall to gather. Ensure that you have the proper trench drain system that will help divert runoff appropriately.
