Keeping your yard soaked in water is not a good idea. It can be a huge nuisance. Think of all the muddy footprints that you would find in your home if you don’t deal with the collected water in your yard, or think of how you won’t be able to mow your lawn since your yard is all soggy. While there are severely DIY yard drainage solutions, it’s always best to hire several professionals for this sort of job. They can get the work done quicker and more efficiently than any of the “hacks” you find online.

Common Types Of Yard Drainage Solutions 

The drain system you have can influence the drainage method in your yard. There are 4 types of yard drainage solutions; channel drains, French drains, dry wells, and yard drains. The type of drain system ideal for your yard depends upon several factors. Here is a brief rundown of all the yard drainage solutions. If you require assistance with yard drainage in Seattle, contact Aces Four Enterprises LLC now. 

Channel Drains

Channel drains can prevent the water from reaching certain surfaces, such as your garage and the interior of your home. It also prevents water from pooling on your walkways, such as sidewalks. 

This system is usually connected to a larger nexus of drains, so before the water gets a chance to be a nuisance, it gets drained out from the pavements themselves. This leaves little to no chance for the water to get pooled in your yard. If you require drain installation, repair, or replacement services in Seattle, Aces Four can help you. Contact us to get a free estimate on the next project. 

French Drains

French drains are pretty common in gardens and yards. This system aims to move the trapped water from the ground to a designated spot. If you live in a region where it rains frequently, then this system is perhaps the ideal one for you. A trench is dug, and a piping system is installed. The pipes then move the excessive water and empty it into the main drainage channel. 

The water is managed on the ground level instead of the gutters, which work from the roof. You can consider this system for yard drainage. Although, more and more people are moving away from conventional drainage systems and opting for trenchless solutions. If you want to know which system would work best for your yard, consult Aces Four in Seattle. We would inspect your home and yard and, based on our findings, advise you on the best drainage solutions for your yard. Give us a call today. 

Dry Wells

Dry wells collect water from the ground until it disperses into the ground naturally. Think of it as a trash can for excess water after precipitation. The dry wells hold water in the container, depending upon their capacity. An average dry well can contain about 50 gallons of water at once. Once the dry well collects the water, it uses the punctured holes in them to slowly eject the water into the ground. 

 Dry wells are often filled with rock or gravel, but they are also often left empty. Not only does using dry wells benefit the homeowner, but it also has several environmental benefits. It reduces water pollution since the unwanted and excessive stormwater is prevented from being emptied into water lakes and streams. With dry wells, no contaminants would be able to harm the aquatic lives in these water bodies. Also, this drainage system can come in handy for returning water to the aquifers. If you want to learn more about how dry wells work and whether it is a good choice for your yard drainage, contact Aces Four in Seattle now. 

Yard Drains

Yard drains, also called catch basins, are tasked to collect excess water in a basin and then redirect it to a draining channel. Usually, these are a part of a large nexus of drainage pipes. These are constructed in the ground directly and are often built in places most prone to flooding. The drains can be of varying sizes, and you can choose a system that is most suitable for your yard’s size. 

If you’re confused about which drainage system is ideal for your home, it’s best to consult professionals rather than gambling your money away. Aces Four can inspect your lawn and yard and suggest the best drainage system for you. We can also install the drains in your home. We will provide you with an estimate of the project before starting the work. Call us to schedule a home visit now.

It was a pleasure to do business with you. Over the phone, Tracy was very nice, honest, helpful, and efficient. Your crew who came to fix the problem was a godsend because I had a tenant moving in that day. If I even need anything further done, I will definitely use your company. I was very impressed.

Thank you for coming out and sending us the estimates promptly. I appreciate your professionalism in every interaction we had - when I made the initial inquiry phone call, the person who received my call treated me very nicely and she also notified me immediately when a scheduling phone call needed to be postponed. On the day of estimate you notified me the exact timing of your arrival. All these things that seem to be small matter but I appreciate how you treat your customers.

Side-sewer hookup and septic decommissioning; the crew was focused on doing the job right. Their initial timeline was optimistic and project took 3 times longer than originally planned due to some issues that couldn't of been foreseen; regardless they knew what they needed to do and got the project done. Their estimate and final bill (which were on par with each other) were for the Project as a whole, minus permits and hookup fees, so there wasn't an additional charge for the extra time needed to complete the project. Aces Four is top on my list to hire again for a future project.

I highly recommend Aces Four, they are the most ethical and honest plumbing company I have found. Very good communication and they are real plumbers that know how to get the job done right. I had a bad experience with another plumbing company that charged me $1,900 to remove roots from my main sewer line, luckily I found Aces Four and I am so happy I did. Aces Four told me they could remove the roots for a 1 or 2 hour maximum charge which was about 80% cheaper than the first terrible company that tried to scam me. It's so hard to find an honest plumbing company, I'm so happy I found Aces Four, I will continue to work with Aces Four in the future and refer them to everyone I know.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ACES 4 - Our plumbing flooded yesterday afternoon - lower floor flooding the entire laundry room and out into our garage - garage was full of packed moving boxes as we are moving in just over a week - I called Aces 4 immediately - Tracy Middlebrook let us know what to do in the interim and had Jessie out here before 10 this morning - all better - we got everything cleaned up and back to packing for our move - I can't recommend Aces 4 enough.

Hi Tracy, Please thank the Aces Four team for great job on our sewer line.


What a great crew, from the moment we got the quote to the time the last of our rockery was put back into place after a repair was made and a side sewer cleanout installed. It's a family owned business, too! Special thanks to Mike (camera), Jerry (liner) and Yung (ran the project and the cat). We couldn't be more pleased.

I have been practicing Real Estate for close to 30 years. I have a very short list of vendors that I refer my homeowners to: Aces Four is at the top of the list because you can TRUST them. If you are experiencing any sewer or drainage issues, call Aces Four. They are very knowledgeable, fast, and very nice.

Your employees doing the sewer repair have been great. They are courteous, as clean as possible, and keep me informed of what is happening. This is a project that we didn't ask for, but the quality of the Aces Four people working on our sewer repair has made it so much better for us. You have an excellent crew!

– Deborah in Greenlake, Seattle, WA

Aces Four did a great job here. We are really happy with their work. They worked with us to be sure everything was being done as we hoped. They also took great care in the rebuilding of the rock wall and the cleanup effort. We appreciate their workmanship.
