Proper water distribution on the site

Getting your water right on the plot: good drainage

Proper drainage will help create a real nature park

1. The first rule is to determine how storm water moves in the yard

If you often observe your landscape during a heavy downpour, you'll find patches where water is capping the ground. Gutters and pipes are probably the culprits. The idea is to distribute water from these concentrated sources of runoff so it can more easily soak into the ground.

2. Cover places where the ground is bare

Such areas, especially if they have been eroded or compacted by a large abundance of moisture, can become impervious to water over time. To slow and spread water, preventing erosion, cover bare ground with wood chips, rocks, coarse mulch, or groundcovers suitable for your climate. Place stones or a wood ground cover on spots where gutters cave in water from the roof.

Also, take care to install a rain barrel and then pour it into the garden.

Proper water distribution in your yard: A stone path

A pathway is laid out for water from the stones, which drains precipitation from the yard into the garden

4. Grow broadleaf trees

Large green crowns absorb moisture through their leaves, intercepting rainwater before it hits the pavement.

Proper water distribution on the site: The lawn

A neat lawn helps improve drainage

Do you use any of the above to control rainfall distribution?
