Irrigation Drainage Many homeowners forget to check for the leading cause of water damage to their home: Poor irrigation drainage direction in their lawns, gardens, and landscaping in general.

How to Check for Proper Irrigation Drainage

A simple guide to judge your irrigation’s efficiency is:

  • Dig garden trenches with a downward slope away from the house
  • You should be able to see part (at least 3 to 4 inches) of your home’s foundation, and then slope the ground a total of 6 inches for the first 10 feet away from the house
  • Point roof gutters away from your home and, if necessary, provide attachments that carry it even further from the home if you notice pooling
  • Use piping to direct condensate line drips away from your home
