I contracted West-Hill Landscaping in Bowmanville to excavate and trance a 35 foot trench at the side of my house. This side drain was to clear standing water which was pooling after rain storms , leaving the side yard marshy entering my side basement wall.
Bill and his team arrived at 8:00 a.m. and worked hard for 10 straight hours manually digging the ditch, filling it with gravel and then topsoil, and then regrading and seeding. I was very impressed by how hard they worked, how they cleaned up the site and the driveway following the project completion, and their willingness to help me to save and to relocate some of the soil to other areas.
Since the trench has been completed, there have only been three days in which it has rained. So far, so good. The water appears to be draining properly and not pooling. Bill has called on both occasions to ensure that the drainage installed is working as intended. I am pleased to date.
However, the real test of the success of the new side yard drainage system will be over the long term and also during the fall and winter months when there is heavy and severe rainfall. Given that I have a five-year warranty with West- Hill Landscaping for the side-yard drainage, Bill guaranteed that they will come back if the problem presents itself again. I trust that he will keep his word and follow through if warranted.
