Summary: The manager of Ann Arbor Landscape company, Twin Oaks Landscape, shares helpful tips on drainage solutions in the August edition of Lawn and Landscape magazine.
Already equipped with a team of highly experienced landscaping and lawn care experts serving Michigan, local Ann Arbor landscaping company, Twin Oaks Landscape, recently had the opportunity to prove once again why they are a viable landscaping resource to the state. This time, the company was given the chance to share some words on wisdom on the topic of drainage solutions with an even much larger audience. In the August edition of Lawn and Landscape magazine, general manager at Twin Oaks Landscape, Chris Speen, shared his insights on some of the primary factors to consider when examining drainage problems for a customer.
Chris Speen, along with other landscaping experts from around the country, shared valuable knowledge about the most important things to consider when it comes to drainage solutions on any job site. For drainage professionals working on the job ¾whether it is at a residential home, apartment complex, or industrial building¾ drainage solutions haven’t really changed over the last several decades. As always, the first step, and Chris’ word of advice, is to look at where the water is intended to go.
From the onset, water typically has a natural flow that it should follow. In some scenarios, drainage problems could actually have simple solutions that can be found by simply going back to look at the water’s intended pathway. Many of these problems don’t even require permits to repair. In the end this could save drainage solution professionals time, resources and money.
Other areas touched upon in the article included knowing where to go when re-routing drainage pipes, picking the right type of piping to use for a given job site, and always remembering to keep ‘safety first’ on the job. Don’t skip any of these steps in an effort to complete a job ahead of schedule. Otherwise, if you do, you could end up facing many costly errors along the way.
