Drainage Swales

Water can pool along your house, or in areas of your yard simply because it has nowhere else to go. Let A-1 create a drainage swale to push the water away from your foundation, or off your yard, into areas you'd rather have it flow.

Installing Drainage Swales to Move Water

Drainage swales can simply be mounds of dirt with grass or landscaping planted on them, or even concrete berms designed to direct the flow of water in the direction desired. They can be vital in keeping the water from flowing into your foundation and flooding your basement.

I have had A1 level both my front porch and large patio. They always do an excellent job, are extremely courteous, punctual, and following the work they call to be sure you are satisfied with the outcome. This is a nice company that does good work and I highly recommend if you have sunken concrete. It is so much more affordable to repair than replace.
