Fresh Look Restoration can take older houses into the future by updating or adding landscape features. Whether its adding rock gardens, fixing driveway or sidewalk runoff, or installing state of the art outdoor living features, homeowners must first be concerned about drainage. Older houses have years of landscape erosion as well as a build up of pressure against basement walls. In addition, basements are often equipped with outdated pump systems that are no longer able to control adequately the in/out water flow on the property.

Many homeowners address landscaping first and then have to to deal with water flow control problems later. The first step in preserving or adding new outdoor elements is to be assured that your house and its property has clean efficient underground water handling. This may mean adding or updating your water management system and requires attention to the grading of the property.
