7/25/23 This company is Great! Competitive Pricing Too! Ellis removed our existing wall of pavers around the house and 3 trees and leveled everything!! 1 tree he put large rocks around and gave it a new look. Everything looks Awesome!! He removed an ugly small tree and replaced it with another. I’m going to have them do a few other things here soon. 😊 But, Ellis and his team was great to work with, very friendly and communication was top notch. We would highly recommend Ellis and his company! Thanks Guys!

Whether you need to prevent basement flooding, manage surface runoff, or protect your landscape with hardscapes like seawalls, we have the expertise to solve your stormwater problems.

Understanding Stormwater Management

Stormwater management involves the control and use of rainwater runoff. Effective stormwater management reduces erosion, prevents flooding, and improves water quality. In Michigan, where heavy storms can cause significant water damage, proper stormwater management is essential.

Common Stormwater Issues and Solutions

Basement Flooding:

  • Problem: Heavy storms can cause water to seep into basements, leading to flooding and water damage.
  • Solution: We install effective drainage systems, such as French drains and sump pumps, to redirect water away from your foundation and prevent basement flooding.

Surface Runoff:

  • Problem: Excessive runoff can cause erosion, damage landscaping, and create unsightly puddles.
  • Solution: We design and install surface drainage solutions, including swales, rain gardens, and permeable pavements, to manage and absorb runoff.

Yard Flooding:

  • Problem: Low-lying areas of your yard may become waterlogged and unusable after heavy rains.
  • Solution: We implement grading and re-sloping techniques to ensure proper water flow away from your yard, combined with catch basins and dry wells to collect and disperse water.

Erosion Control:

  • Problem: Runoff can erode soil and damage plants, leading to unstable landscapes.
  • Solution: We use erosion control methods such as retaining walls, terracing, and ground cover plants to stabilize the soil and prevent erosion.

Hardscape Solutions:

  • Problem: Coastal properties may require protection from storm surges and high water levels.
  • Solution: We construct seawalls and other hardscape features to protect your property from the damaging effects of water and storms.
