North Texas can have very heavy and quick rain storms which makes it hard for our thick soils to properly absorb the rain before it floods and causes erosion. This Tioga Texas homeowner had flooding problems in their back yard and side yard every time it rained. We decided the best way to tackle this problem was to install a dry creek bed french drain hybrid. Flourish trenched out the area that had been eroded and lined it with small pebbles. For the back yard, we added a drainpipe to redirect the water to run off the property onto the driveway and into the drainage system. Then we topped the trench with 1 to 1.5 inch rainbow river rock. This helps to percolate rain into the ground instead of the rain flooding and erosion the soil.
After the heavy freeze north Texas had in February 2021, the entrances to The Ranch neighborhood in Valley View Texas needed a lot of rejuvenation. The neighborhood has 2 entrances with signs and 2 flower beds on each side for a total of eight flower beds which were full of dead plant material. Flourish removed 8 bags of dead plant material that has now been turned into compost and will be returned to the Earth. We planted a variety of native Texas drought resistant plants in each bed along with the plants we were able to save. Once the new plants have been established, the beds will only require maintenance 2 to 4 times a year depending on the weather.
