Drainage & Erosion Control.

Eliminating your water runoff problems.

Maryland Drainage & Erosion Control

Transforming a Swampy Yard into a Beautiful Haven!

If you have a drainage or erosion problem, let the professional water tamers at East Coast design and install a well-engineered, integrated system to safely and effectively guide water away from your home and yard.

THE THREATS. Poor drainage can lead to seeping, pooling or flooding water that can damage foundations, basements, landscaping, decks, patios, walkways, driveways and more. In addition to water, gravity can also cause soil erosion, weakening hillsides and destabilizing trees close to your home. These threats can reduce property values and lead to expensive repairs down the road.

THE SOLUTIONS. East Coast has decades of experience using a myriad of intelligent solutions to solve every kind of drainage and erosion problem. We expertly assess your situation and formulate a trusted and cost-effective plan. Our expansive engineering skills allow us to combine the best techniques and materials to suit your project which could include underground drainage pipes, catch basins, retaining walls, land grading, swales, dry riverbeds and wells, French drains and more.

PROTECTION. When East Coast designs a new landscape, patio, walkway or driveway, we always incorporate a drainage and erosion control system to protect them from the threat of water and gravity, enabling you to enjoy your outdoor investment without worrying about future damage.Sometimes, a beautiful hand-crafted retaining wall is needed to shore up sloping areas and hillsides to create the perfect protected space needed for your new landscape or hardscape.

DRAINAGE & ECO-FRIENDLY OPTIONS. East Coast also provides eco-friendly drainage solutions, including driveways made from permeable pavers, dry riverbeds and rain gardens. These projects reduce runoff and the harm pollutants cause to local waterways, including our own Chesapeake Bay. Many of our clients secure significant cash rebates for these and other green projects through the RainScapes (Montgomery County, Maryland) or RiverSmart (Washington, D.C.) programs.

Integrated Drainage System Project - Maryland

For this Maryland client, water was threatening their foundation, turning their yard into a swamp, eroding soil, exposing tree roots and crumbling their driveway. East Coast transformed their property into a beautiful haven and tamed the water, directing it away from their property and into the natural woods beyond.

They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
