Does your yard turn swampy when it rains?
The Lowery and Skafsgaard home in Takoma Park, Maryland certainly does. It gets to the point where they know they need a yard drainage solution (or any working solution really).
After it rains the yard is full of standing water. Instead of walking it’s more like splashing around the yard. There doesn’t seem to be a mosquito problem yet but with standing water, it’s always a possibility.
Their yard still feels the effects days after the rain stops. The area quickly turns into a mud pit, making it hard or impossible for anything to grow. It looks like someone tried to patch it. They are tired of having to look at and deal with this swampland.
The rest of their yard is immaculate, making the poor drainage area stick out like a sore thumb. They want to solve this problem in a way that won’t tear up their landscape.
That’s when the Lowery and Skafsgaards come to us (Premier Ponds) again.
Back in 2013, they had us come and install a pond and stream in their backyard (it still looks beautiful by the way, you can see it in the video). They are already familiar with our work and team members, so they reach out to us and together we come up with a plan: a rainwater harvesting system.
You can watch us put their plan into action in this video:
