Drainage Services in South Lyon, MI


Our company has many years of experience with solving drainage issues at properties in South Lyon, Michigan. Throughout all of different situations, we have figured out how to create different creative and visually appealing solutions for correcting these unsightly problems, which can really vary significantly. We have encountered anything from heavy gray clay soils to beach sand, and it usually ends up being a mix of everything in between. Water on clay soils can become very problematic if your lawn drainage is not properly directed away from the foundation of your home. Clay soils can also prevent water from soaking into the ground fast enough, which can ultimately create ponding or puddling at the surface.

On the other hand, sandy soils tend to be much easier to work with because they cause ponding problems at the surface. However, these can also end up transmitting water movement underground, which may ultimately result in issues after heavy rains or during a wet season.

While no contractor can change the geology of the Howell area, we are very proud of our ability to work successfully with the given soil types to create the proper slopes, barriers or contours that will solve your yard drainage issues. Underground trenching and/or piping may need to be part of the solution for you, and this may involve one of the following design concepts:

  • Trench Drains
  • Bubble Drains
  • Dry Wells
  • Underground Discharge Pipes
  • Dry (decorative) Creek Beds
  • Dry River Beds
  • Dry (decorative) Ponds

"Todd's Services are prompt, courteous, and reliable...

Our property presented a little bit of a challenge - due to sloping hills and sandy soil. They provided us with excellent alternatives to having to create expensive retaining walls. Todd's came out with HEAVY-DUTY equipment to fine grade the property in preparation for their Hydroseed. Even when some of their equipment came in contact with our TV/Internet cable, they immediately got a service personnel on our site to reconnect our service. We already have a little bit of green grass already sprouting! Hopefully, we didn't lose too much from wash-away. Todd's Guarantees their work."
