Grading in Saskatoon  plays a major role in where the water ends up on your property. When looking at the grading you should be looking at all areas around your house including the landscaping directly surrounding the house, paved areas, the lawn, and gardens. The goal is to have all the water that falls on the roof of the house and across the entire property to be conveyed away from your home. All water that falls within 10 feet of the house should have a clear path away from your home, without any ponding of water. Ideally, in order for the water to run downhill, the ground should drop 1 inch for every 1 foot as you move away from the building for the first 5 to 10 feet surrounding the building. While this is not always possible, the ground should never be sloping upwards as you move away from your homes foundation. If you are experiencing any water drainage problems contact us, Saskatoon’s grading specialists.

An in-ground sprinkler system in Saskatoon is by far the easiest and most effective way to water your lawn. You can program it to automatically water the grass on a regular schedule, which means you won’t have to drag out the hose and sprinkler every few days. And a properly designed sprinkler system provides total coverage, ensuring there aren’t any grassy areas that are left either parched and dry, or over-watered to the point of drowning. By metering out a precise, consistent amount of water, automatic sprinklers not only make it easier to maintain a lush, green lawn they’ll also save you money by not wasting water.
