5 Landscaping Tips to Prevent Basement Flooding

  1. Grade your lawn in the right direction

Landscape grades that run toward the house instead of away from it often result in flooding,

2. Watch where water approaches your house

3. Leave a gap between your mulch and siding

When mulching your landscape, keep the materials away from siding and be sure to leave a 6-inch gap

4. Direct downspouts away from house

Extend downspouts away from the house to keep the water farther away from the structure.

5. Use grass barriers to redirect floodwaters

You may have to get a little wet, but homeowners should "get outside when it’s raining and look at the exterior” to determine where the flooding is originating.
