For homeowners, drainage isn’t usually on their minds. It isn’t a service they typically seek out, unless they are having issues with water damage to their home. Drainage is an easy up-sell. It’s that service that helps you with your bottom line and helps the customer with their landscape. The trick is, they don’t know it yet, so you’re going to have to sell it to them!
In Our Area, No Drainage Leads to Problems
Pooling water in a homeowner’s yard is never a wanted thing. In many cases the water rolls down from a neighbor’s yard and resides in the lower lying space along the property line. As most people know, too much water is deadly to many plants. And, it makes a wet, muddy mess. This is a problem you can resolve before the mosquitoes return in the spring.
Poor drainage can show its results slowly:
- rotting wood
- crumbling walls
- choking plants
- flooding basements
These and more are all ways that drainage can do damage to your client’s home. As long as mother nature is giving us her best with the rain and snow, drainage is a necessary service, and one you can offer!
