Your yard can help protect your home by managing water runoff. Gas, sewage, and water lines often run beneath it.
For drainage, your yard should slope away from the house a bit. Fences and retaining walls give it shape and prevent erosion. They might be brick, stone, metal, concrete, or wood.
Seasonal upkeep and regular maintenance pay off. A well-kept yard adds curb appeal, has fewer pests, and provides safe play space for kids and pets.
