Drainage systems work for different and specific situations. Several factors determine which drainage system to use for a particular section of lawn or landscaping, including the ground topography and geomorphology. 


Water is extremely damaging. Drainage around buildings is vital to prevent leaks and moisture intrusion into building foundations and walls. Most properties have a drainage issue. In order to protect your investment we suggest installing one of our professionally designed and installed drainage systems. Our drainage systems use various techniques to remove unwanted water from the problem area. We install French, Surface, and Channel Drains. We also install Sump Pump Systems and Encapsulate Crawl Spaces.


Native Design & Hardscape's experts can assess your property and offer a solution for proper drainage on your property. We install corrugated, pvc, and high density propylene pipes.

French Drain

A French drain is a trench filled with a porous material like gravel or foam peanuts, in which water seeps into a perforated pipe and is diverted away from the property. It is typically used for residential applications to prevent surface water from penetrating and damaging the building foundations.


Surface Drainage System

This system consists of ditches and flexible PVC pipes. The pipes and ditches collect water from the ground level, divert it away, and are usually suitable for areas with enough natural grade to allow water to drain out through gravity. If the gravitational pull is not enough, it may require installing a sump pump system.


Channel Drains

A channel drain is used for surface water and is mainly popular due to its simplicity in design and installation. It consists of a channel and a removable grate, and it may also require a sump, end caps, and other accessories. It helps deal with heavy run-offs caused by heavy downpours and flooding. Channel drains are more discrete and aesthetically pleasing.


Sump Pump Systems

Sump pumps are perfect for basement waterproofing systems, especially where the lawn and/or landscape’s grading slopes towards the house/building area. They consist of a built-in float switch that pumps away water and prevents it from collecting directly around the foundation and flooding your basement.


Dry Creek Beds

A dry creek bed is a decorative yet functional landscaping feature that mimics a natural stream, managing water runoff and preventing erosion in your yard.


Swales / Bioswales

A swale, or bioswale, is a landscaped, shallow vegetated channel used for the movement and temporary storage of runoff water. 


Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing consists of applying a sealant to prevent water from penetrating the basement of a structure. The installation of drain(s) and/or a sump pump may be applicable. 


Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation creates a dry buffer between the dirt floor of the crawl space, its walls, and the floor above. The floor and walls are lined with a reinforced polyethylene vapor barrier. This barrier prevents ground moisture from rising to the floor. Ventilation will be maintained and/or established. In most instances a dehumidifier should be installed to control the dewpoint.


Pool Deck Drains

Pool deck drains remove excess water from around your pool area, keeping the deck dry and safe, and preventing water damage.
