We had 2 elderly large dogs a few years ago who dug out against our foundation for shade and cooling from the Houston sun. They have since passed, but we hadn't fixed the area yet. Then Harvey came along and invaded our house in that same area.
I posted the project and almost immediately got a text from Lance, the owner. He came out a day or so later and gave me a great quote and detailed how he would help us mitigate the drainage issue so we wouldn't have this problem again.
Well, they just finished the job in about an hour and it looks pristine. Two new drain catch boxes and new drain line extensions with the thick turf replaced as if it had never been moved. They graded the area so that now water goes down the drain instead of in our home.
All we need to do is water the area so that the grass can take hold and when we have the gutters reinstalled (after we have the roof replaced next month), we'll tie into the new drain line and be safe from flooding again.
I highly recommend Lance and his crew!
He does reasonably priced lawn work as well, so keep him in mind for that. He's coming out again later to help us get rid of some trash trees the squirrels planted for us and clear out the poison oak that is taking over our front "garden".
