Drainage & Irrigation

Discussing drainage and irrigation systems is not the most exciting part of landscape project, but it is arguably the most vital.  The most common issue that effects plant health is not pests or disease – it’s water. Too little or too much water can destroy healthy plants and lead to countless other issues for your landscape as well as your home’s foundation.

Moss Landscaping is well staffed with irrigation and drainage experts as well as multiple experienced crews.  We use only commercial grade materials and our licensed irrigators are certified and able to work for every city, village or municipality.

All drainage work is also checked and supervised to ensure proper drainage and flow to the storm sewers and culverts. All catch basins are laid by licensed drain-laying professionals with great care. Moss landscaping employs licensed irrigators and, when necessary, works in conjunction with an engineering consultant.

“If you are considering a large landscape project, reach out to a project manager. Houston is a great city with the potential for amazing gardens, but we also receive an excessive amount of rainfall and experience extremely hot summers. It can take two to four years for a newly planted landscape to “mature” and reach its intended design, so proper drainage and irrigation at the start will give your garden a much higher likelihood for success.”

– George Johnston, Landscape Designer + Project Manager
