1.  A clogged yard drain is a common yard drainage problem that can be caused by several different things. Often leaves, twigs, and even trash can make their way into your yard drain and cause this problem with drainage. Solutions may include removing the debris that is causing the clog with a scoop or a gloved hand, or hiring a professional property maintenance team if the problem is more severe.

2.  Uneven slopes in your lawn can cause certain areas to flood, which can prevent effective yard drainage. Rainwater, your sprinklers, or even your neighbours’ sprinklers can create a problem with excess water collecting at the bottom of these uneven slopes. If you are dealing with uneven slopes on your property that are causing damage, it is often a good idea to work with a professional company to find the best possible solution.

3.  Dirt and debris can also collect in your yard over time, which can lead to clogged drains and other yard drainage problems. Regular yard maintenance like cleaning and mowing is a great way to prevent these issues and future damage to your property.
