1. Install A French Drain – You can also install a French drain system to make sure that water doesn’t pool up in your yard, and also in order to divert water water away from your home. What you can do is to dig a trench around your home’s foundation, and install in a drain that will pull the water away. Cover it with gravel and then soil, and make sure that the trench slopes downward so that the water is flowing away from your home’s foundation.
2. Install An Exterior Drain – If you have a basement, make sure you install a drainage system in it as well. This can be a footer drain, or a tile that will drain away excess water from your home.
