Water, water everywhere! One of the most challenging issues for a homeowner to solve are drainage issues. Whether you have a wet basement, a washed-out patio, a muddy backyard, or a mosquito haven, water can do a tremendous amount of damage to your home. It also makes your outdoor space unusable.
Solving these issues takes experience, know-how, and some creative thinking. This home in Old Town Alexandria had a washed-out, sunken patio. The water was trapped and had nowhere to go. We installed a series of connected cisterns that channeled the water to a single outlet drain. This left the patio dry, level, and usable for the homeowner’s enjoyment.
