Puddles and pools of standing water are an issue for many residents in the Lake Norman, North Carolina area. Even if you do not experience pooling water, you may notice that your soil is wetter and more boggy than desired.

Standing water and overly wet ground usually indicate a drainage issue. If water is not draining properly, this can cause multiple issues that will affect your ability to properly make use of your outdoor space. At best, your garden will be aesthetically unappealing, but could ultimately affect the structural integrity and value of your property.

Why Is Too Much Water A Problem?

Some may believe that standing water will resolve naturally in your garden, as if plant life will absorb the excess. Ultimately, too much water is devastating to the health of your lawn and plants. Overly saturated soil becomes compacted and shrunken. This prevents oxygen and nutrients from permeating the earth, starving your plants. Over time, roots will rot away, leading to total plant death.

Wet, nutrient-deprived soil will give off a stagnant, foul odor. The smell of any rotting foliage will only add to the overall unpleasant smell. Therefore, even if you are not particularly concerned with maintaining a green space in your garden, standing water will impact your enjoyment of your outdoor space for entertaining and socializing.

Badly drained landscaping will look unsightly and unappealing, as flower beds become swamped and ruts appear in your lawn area. Wet ground will splatter and stain clothes and shoes, and mud will get tracked into your home. Slippery, uneven ground is also a hazard to you and your family, as tripping or falling can cause serious injuries.

Most devastatingly, wet ground will eventually affect surrounding buildings. Damp and mold will begin to appear in your property, potentially affecting health and causing warping in doors and windows. In extreme conditions, standing water can lead to foundations subsiding, which is very costly to repair.

Although the impact of poor drainage can be irritating, disastrous and costly, often the solution is very simple. At Maxwell Landscaping, we are committed to finding the simplest, most cost-effective resolution to your standing water problems.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
