Drainage is often overlooked. GreenStar recently recommended that we carve in this drainage installation in between recently installed infrastructure to guarantee that the large specimen trees that we are installing can survive. Effective drainage is crucial in landscape design for several reasons. First, proper drainage prevents waterlogging, which can lead to soil erosion, root rot, and the suffocation of plant roots. By facilitating the removal of excess water, drainage ensures the optimal oxygenation of soil, promoting healthy plant growth. Additionally, it helps in controlling erosion by directing runoff away from vulnerable areas, such as slopes or delicate plantings. Furthermore, efficient drainage contributes to the prevention of standing water, which can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other pests. Ultimately, incorporating adequate drainage systems into the landscape not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also fosters a sustainable and resilient environment for your plants and trees.
