Lawn Drainage: The Triangle’s Topography & Hilly Homes

For homeowners in Raleigh, Cary, and throughout the Triangle, lawn drainage is a problem that just won’t go away. Thanks to our area’s hilly landscape, homes are at a higher risk of having issues with standing water. On top of that, the Piedmont region of North Carolina (which includes the Triangle) gets around 45 inches of rain per year. Compared to the national average of 39 inches, that means that homes not only can’t handle the water but get more water than most of the United States.

While finding reputable help can get frustrating, there are companies in the Triangle who are specially trained and skilled at efficiently solving lawn drainage problems and thereby banishing standing water.
