Drainage Solutions

At Hometown Landscape, as part of our landscaping services we provide our clients with premium drainage services throughout Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia. Often an ignored element of your landscape, there is no doubt that the drainage scheme of any property plays a large role in the longevity and overall look of your landscape as it is imperative to have successful ‘drainage’ of water entering and exiting your property without it being an eyesore or obvious. It is our goal to ensure that any drainage issues that you may currently have are sorted out and that in any new landscape construction will not be a problem as we can offer you the perfect solutions to any drainage problem.

Some of Our Drainage Solutions Include:


Dry river beds are an excellent way to control and direct the flow of water on your property and add a nice design element to your landscape. We grade your landscape soil to direct water towards the river bed, which then directs the water towards the drains. The river bed also acts as a filter and will clear some of the impurities from the water and can be beautifully designed to blend in with the rest of your landscape.


A pop-up Emitter is a circular drain of sorts that gets embedded into the landscape of your yard. The pop-up emitter is an efficient drainage system that directs water away from the foundation of the home and towards the public drains. It pops-up when the water pressure is sufficient and releases it to a large area in order to minimize water usage. They can be built into the design of your landscape and hidden as to not take away from your tastefully designed landscape.


Dry wells can quickly and immediately transfer surface water to deeper subsoils in order to maximize drainage. They are buried deep under your landscape and are a great solution for ensuring the preservation of your grass and plants. We grade the soil towards these wells to ensure all the surface water is drained efficiently. They have a minimal effect on the appearance of your designed landscape.


These installations are similar to dry wells and dry river beds. They transport water from the surface to the deeper subsoil and replenish groundwater levels. Their in-ground design can often be built into the landscape to blend right in with the design.


Slotted and perforated drainage is an age-old system that works efficiently to filter and direct water away from the surface. We grade the landscape towards these drains to ensure they catch all of the water. The water will then be dispersed through the tiny holes deeper into the soil and limit and prevent flooding of your landscape.


This drain is similar to perforated drains because it too uses a perforated pipe to direct surface and groundwater. The pipe has holes that allow the water to enter so it can be redirected throughout the soil naturally. We also install downspout piping & drainage to ensure the effectiveness of the drain.
