Drainage Services for Your Michigan Property

Todd's Services, Inc. has over 35 years of experience correcting drainage issues on properties in Michigan. As a residential landscaping contractor in Michigan, we have many creative and visually appealing ways to correct unsightly drainage issues.

Geology can vary significantly. We experience everything from heavy, grey clay soils to beach sand, and usually a combination of everything in between. Clay soils usually prevent water from soaking into the ground as fast as we would like, creating ponding or puddles at the surface. Ambient surface water on clay soils can be problematic if drainage is not properly directed away from your home's foundation.

Sandy soils on the other hand are usually easier to work with, seldom causing ponding issues at the surface; However, sandy soils can transmit water movement underground that can create problems such as unwanted springs after heavy rains or a wet season.

While Todd's Services can't change the geology in your area, we can work with the given soil types to create proper slopes, barriers or contours to solve your drainage issues. Underground trenching and/or piping may be part of the solution and may involve one of the following design ideas:

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

The design of the flower beds is perfect. The trees, bushes and flowers are top of the line. The neighbors can't quit commenting about how good it loo
ks. Thank you.

We began work on our yard, deck, trees, and garden areas last May. Ed Esch (Landscape Designer) suggested that we complete the work in stages to allow
the soil to settle and recover from the construction abuses. Last summer the deck construction was completed and this year we continued with work on a new boulder wall, additional trees planted, sink holes filled,fresh sod added, and erosion protection for the fence row. We are adding photos of the work to Angie's List. Ed was well informed, knowledgeable, and easy to talk with. We agreed on a several stage approach to fixing our yard. Our yard continues to evolve and change in response to new challenges - many of them caused by disrupted soil, poor grading, and nasty yellow clay. As prior residents of Livingston County we were familiar with Todd's work and were pleased with their suggestions. Different men worked on our projects - Eric used his talent with boulders to fashion a wall that completes a pathway to the back yard. David measured and determined a location for drainage pipe. Dillen, Adam, and Mason hauled load after load of rocks, soil, and sod from the front to the back. They were all talented hard working individuals. We helped where and when possible - and they were pleased with the end result - as were we. We plan to leave the sign in the front yard for the remainder of the summer - and have already recommended Todd's Services to others in this new subdivision. Edit Answer

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 pr
ovided 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.
