Onorato Landscaping – for a complete drainage system for your Bergen County yard

If you want to remediate standing water or wet areas in your yard in Bergen County, you’ll need a company that can plan and install the proper drainage system.  Poor drainage is not only unsightly but can jeopardize the health of your lawn, shrubs and gardens as well as being a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Onorato Landscaping LLC Yard Drainage in Bergen County

Standing water or muddy areas also increase slip and falls and cause injuries to your family or guests.  Most grass, shrubs and trees do not thrive and often die in soil that is saturated.

Types of yard drain systems

Proper grading

A properly graded yard uses gravity to direct the water away from your home or building and drains it naturally.

Swales are man-made ridges and graded low areas that direct the water to where it can drain away naturally or dissipate over a large area, helping to reduce the need for watering while helping to reduce or prevent flooding and perpetually wet areas.

The use of plants and trees that thrive in heavily watered areas

Planting trees, shrubs and plants that have evolved to live in wetter areas is a good choice for areas that have small amounts of excess water. Here is a list for your reference.

French drain or a blind ditch

A French drain or blind ditch is one of the most common types of yard drainage systems.  This system consists of a ditch with a perforated pipe wrapped in filter fabric and buried in gravel to direct water in the most advantageous manner so that it drains from the property.

Drywell system

A drywell system stores water collected from the home’s downspouts or drains placed in the low spots in a yard.  The water flows into an underground storage well.  The water will gradually filter out of the well and end up back in the groundwater.

Corrugated plastic tubes

Corrugated tubing can direct the water from a home’s downspouts away from the home and can be an inexpensive solution to basement flooding.

Best Yard Drainage in Bergen County New Jersey

The tubing can often be buried to for esthetics or safety reasons, and can direct the water to areas of the yard that can easily absorb it or direct it to a drain.

    Great, awesome service. Very professional team. Did a fast job. Reasonable price. Highly recommend. Special thanks to Marc. He communicates with you and helps to do a right choice about landscaping and hardscaping.
  • Avatar Jose Amaris ★★★★★ a year ago
    Amazing service, really Happy with the results!
    Marc has been taking care of the landscaping needs of our home for many years now and we do not have a single thing to complain about.
    The landscapers are experienced in what they're
    … More doing and it's evident by the work they leave behind.
    I would sometimes forget & leave my chairs, tables, etc... on the lawn and the crew would move them, do their job, and then put them back on their place. I'm glad they don't just mow around and take the easy route. It's the little things that also help show they're hard-workers.
    A few new landscaping companies have opened up around our area. I've looked into them but with Onorato's great prices and the stress-free experience I've had with them, I'm not looking to make a switch anytime soon.
    Marc is also very kind and pleasant to talk to on the phone while making landscaping arrangements. When someone cares about their business it truly shows and makes life easier for everyone.
    I hope me sharing my personal experience helps out!

    If you want high quality professional service at a very fair price then look no further. Ornato Landscaping is by far the best landscaper I have ever used and will be the only landscaper I use going forward.
    I obtained 5 quotes for the
    … More planting of 9 Giant Green Thujas and removal of a shrubs. Not only was Marc’s price the lowest, but he was the most patient and professional compared with others. He took the time to plan the project with me and provided a very fair quote shortly after. No need to look any further if you are looking for a great landscaper.

    Marc and his staff are first rate! They did a variety of plantings, stone and mulch work for us and transformed our back yard with beautiful paver work. Work is completed on or ahead of schedule, always within the estimated price and with … More quality materials.
  • Avatar Jeanne Zanone ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Excellent experience with knowledgeable, hard-working designer/landscapers after Onorato was chosen from numerous estimates. Marc and his crew extracted unwanted trees and shrubs (one over 40ft!) and created a beautiful landscape for us … More with two focal-point trees, and a variety of shrubs which included 16 Abrovitae. Chosen plants compliment our home, but will also survive with sun conditions. When we asked to change plant locations or add items during installation, Marc met every request; he even stayed after his crew departed to water and instruct us on maintenance. We really couldn't be happier with the results!

    This is the first time I tried finding a service provider on this site, since I tend to do a lot of projects myself. In a nutshell, Marc was great! I am a very meticulous person when undertaking projects due to my background in architecture, and Marc exceeded my expectations. I began a large hardscape project last year and needed the finishing touch of a large sod install project . It required ripping out the old turf, regrading the soil where trees were recently removed, installing new topsoil and 2500sf of sod. All of this on top of hilly terrain. Marc's crew was very professional and meticulous. His company had all the required tools and multiple trucks to complete the project. It was completed in a timely manner, within a few days of singing the contract. The communication and coordination was excellent. The pricing was very competitive and I am extremely happy with the entire experience.
  • Avatar Jea Z. ★★★★★ 12 hours ago
    We chose Onorato over many estimates for a large landscaping project involving removal of a 50 foot tree, three other trees, and various bushes. We were also provided with a detailed plan to plant two large feature trees, multiple abrovitae, and numerous smaller bushes that would grow well here. After previous removal of the huge tree, Marc and his crew worked an entire day to transform our property to a beautiful landscape. They are patient, hard-working and very thorough. We asked for a few changes and additions throughout the day, and nothing was ever a problem. Whatever we wanted was done with a smile. Onorato mulched our entire property too and even included seeding of other grass areas and replacement of rock features that wasn't included in the estimate. Marc stayed after his crew to teach us about watering and care. I can't tell you how happy we are with this highly professional yet personable company. Honestly, we wouldn't change a thing.
  • Avatar Bethany L. ★★★★★ Apr 5, 2017
    What a wonderful experience. Marc came out to my home the very next day to discuss the work I requested. He came up with an amazing design for the front and back of my home which included many specimen plantings and a paver patio in the back. Marc and his team was efficient, knowledgeable and finished the job on time as he promised. We were extremely satisfied with EVERYTHING!!!
