When there is a significant weather event forecasted, it is always best to play on the side of caution. Ensure these 3 things are done in your garden prior to the rain starting, just in case you experience flooding rain in your area.
If you are new to your property then use these opportunities to assess your garden for drainage issues and rectify them before the next round of flooding rain.
Remember to keep an eye on the pool too! Maintaining water levels by flushing to waste to ensure overflow to surrounding ground is avoided. Reducing the amount of water flowing on the ground is a priority to ensure you keep your home safe from flooding during weather events of this nature.
If you are experiencing drainage issues at your place, then there are some easy things you can do yourself (like a well placed raised garden bed) to reduce problems. But if all else fails engage a licensed plumber to help you.
PLEASE REMEMBER – If it’s flooded – forget it!
