Is your garden is flooded, here are some tips on how to prevent this? Also what’s the best way of clearing flood water after the damage has been done.

If you’ve lived in your house for years and your garden has only flooded slightly, this doesn’t mean that you’re in the clear. After last week’s down pour many homeowners found themselves dealing with unprecedented flooding issues.

If you’re not prepared for this, it can mean huge costs. You’ll have to have the water pumped out professionally, which can be expensive. You may even have to pay for repairs to the garden as well as repairs to the plaster and foundations on your house.

Avoid this situation by making your garden flood-proof now. It’s a relatively simple process that is much less costly than dealing with flood waters after the fact. Unless you have personal experience with construction and water management, you may need to work with a qualified professional on this. You can find a qualified trade professional on

One of the most effective solutions to clear flood water is to install a submersible pump. A submersible pump is a small pumping unit. The pump has a special sensor that can detect when water reaches a certain level and activate or deactivate a pumping action. Once the sensor activates the pump motor can force water out of the flooded area through a hose or pipe that is used to direct water a safe distance away from the home and garden. A submersible pump can be purchased relatively cheaply at your local hardware store or online at

To make the drainage solution even more effective you can cut a hole, or a sump hole in the garden. The sump hole is a hole approximately a 24 by 24-inch, cut into the lowest point of the garden to collect any water that can gather. As water fills the hole, the submersible pump automatically turns on and sends the water along the hose away from your home or flooded area of your garden. If you have a good submersible pump, you’ll not have to worry about your garden flooding.

Another option is to install a French drain in your garden. Installing a French drain in addition to your submersible pump is doubly effective. A French drain is a perforated pipe that is installed under your garden. It can collects water and routes it toward the sump hole or to a safer distance from your home or garden.

Another smart way to keep the flood water at bay is to grade the land outside of your home so that it slopes downward from the house. This way, water will be drawn away from your home thanks to simple gravity.

To make the waste arrangement considerably more compelling you can cut an opening, or a sump gap in the garden. The sump opening is a gap roughly a 24 by 24-inch, cut into the least purpose of the garden to gather any water that can accumulate. As water fills the gap, the submersible pump naturally turns on and sends the water along the hose far from your home or overwhelmed region of your garden. On the off chance that you have a decent submersible pump, you'll not need to stress over your garden flooding.
