Seattle Rockeries' plans include solutions for draining foundations, paved surfaces, water traps, and gutter downspouts. Geotechnical engineers and landscape drainage professionals diagnose your water table, terrain, and soil compositions. Signs of drainage issues include standing water, soggy grass, bare roots, dead grass, mosquitoes, and other swamp creatures. Create a drainage plan to fix dangerous soil saturation levels on your property that affect the health and well being of your family.
Drainage problems destroy the property value of Seattle homes every day. When water collects around structures it destroys interior finishes, drywall, wood flooring, and contributes to foundation failure. Heavy rain and flooding around your foundation can cause soil erosion and landslides.

Seattle Rockeries prevents erosion with drainage plans that make use of trench excavation and use of trench drains. Trench drains are any drain that is laid or installed within a ditch on your property. Trench drains include french drains, curtain drains, channel drains, and small creek beds. Many trench drains utilize perforated pipe and crushed stone, while others use channel drains and concrete.
Drainage emitters are used to divert water away from homes and other structures. These pop-up drainage emitters release captured water into water safe locations such as curbside drains and rain gardens. Pipes from curtain drains and curtain drains use gravity to carry surface runoff down into lower areas of your landscape. Water pressure opens the emitter for release when water collects in the drainage system.
Drain boxes are catch basins built to a smaller scale using plastic or composite material. A Drain box can be installed in an area known for collecting standing water, under a gutter downspout, or below sloped areas. Large drain boxes can be designated to hold multiple drain outlets, small drain boxes can be used for specific tasks.
Stormwater traps are concrete pits that collect surface runoff and filter trash and large debris before releasing water into local stormwater systems. Stormwater traps are typically used on large properties, hills, and slopes.
Seattle Rockeries installs pre-cast plastic, polymer, and concrete catch basins in residential properties throughout Seattle. Catch basins carry water away from your home and into public stormwater systems. Catch basins are usually located at a low area of within your landscape or property. The size of your catch basin is designed to hold and filter runoff from your lawn, around the house, off surfaces and gutters.
