The family-friendly Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Illinois has all the amenities you need but also the space that you crave. When the daily grind wears you down, coming home to decompress is priceless. However, if you pull up to a yard full of swampy, muddy water, you may not feel as relaxed as you’d like.
When weather extremes wreak havoc on your property, you may notice that standing water has become a persistent issue. We’ve been Oak Brook yard drainage experts for over a decade now, so we know how to handle the rain, sleet, snow, and slush that may be creating issues on your lawn.
We have been honored to serve the greater Chicago area since we opened our doors in 2000. We love working with our clients to design premier landscapes, build patios, retaining walls, and even install holiday lighting. But the foundation for all of that is a good drainage system. If you don’t have that in place, your plans will be undermined.
It’s a pretty alarming statistic, but the fact is that 85% of home repair expenses are the result of water damage. And drainage problems are extremely common in northeastern Illinois, where we get an average of 37” of snow and 37” of rainfall annually.
A water-logged lawn not only cuts into the enjoyment of your outdoor areas, but it can also have a negative impact on the value of your property.
And from a health and safety standpoint, the danger is no joke. Leaky gutters and drainage issues can lead to water seeping into your foundation, your crawl space, and basement, causing massive damage to your home and your family.
Ware landscaping is proud to offer local homeowners and businesses peace of mind by providing the best professional Oak Brook drainage solutions available.
