Drainage Solutions – Downspout Extensions

Drainage problems can cause extensive damage and create major headaches for you as a homeowner.

There are many solutions to these problems ranging from a simple downspout extension to an extensive french drain system or channel drain. We will guide you to the right solution suited for your property.

Extending your downspouts underground to a proper exit point is a drainage solution many homeowners overlook. Most often connected to a pop-up emitter, this pipe carries the water exiting your downspouts away from your house and lawn.

  • Hi Mark

    Hope all is well and that you had a nice Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends.

    My brother and wife just left and as they stood on my front porch, my brother looked around and said you have a nice yard. His wife said, "I know her grass looks like carpet and nice carpet compared to the other neighbors. It's so green and intact as opposed to being blotchy like the other neighbors."


    All I could do was smile. Thank you Mark! You said your company could help me achieve the results I wanted and it did and I knew I kicked my neighbors butt this year and that compliment was the confirmation.

  • If you are looking for an outstanding, client-oriented landscape company, you will not go wrong with Independence Landscape (IL). I found IL on the internet and, after reading the testimonials, I decided to give them a shot. It was a very good decision. I was so impressed with the responsiveness of Curt. He immediately replied to my inquiry and came to my house a couple of days later to discuss some landscaping work in my backyard. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He worked with me to make sure that the landscaping work would fit my needs. A few days later, he came back to me with a landscaping design (trees, shrubs, fencing, walkway, etc.) And, only a few weeks after that, his crew transformed my yard within a matter of 2-3 days. I was very impressed with the outcome and enjoy my new living space every single day.


    Following the redesign of my backyard, I have continued to use the services of IL, i.e. lawncare, flower installation. The service is of the highest standard. I am very, very happy to have found such a reliable and responsive landscape and lawn care company. Thanks so much, Curt!


    - Melanie M., Old Town, Alexandria, VA

  • Chad & Curt,

    We would like to thank you and your team for the good work you have done on our lawn. Since your visit to our home several weeks ago, the health of our lawn has significantly improved and the quality of the mowing, trimming, and leaf-blowing services is now top notch. Our lawn has never looked better.


    - Buddy W., Alexandria, VA

  • Curt,

    I want to thank you and your team for doing an absolutely awesome job with the landscaping of my back yard. You took something that was basically a big weed pit and made it a beautiful tranquil piece of art. When I look at my backyard it truly takes my breath away. I am so pleased with the job and am thankful that you were able to get it finished before my son's wedding.


    Your team, was friendly, and very hard working. They showed up for work every day early in the morning and some days worked late in the evening, always with a smile. I wished the contractors working in my house worked half as hard, they might have been finished by now.


    You and your team also were able to weed and clean up other areas of the yard that were not originally scheduled and that I am ever so grateful for. I might also add that it was very nice to see "the boss" get out there and get his hands dirty helping his crew get the job done. Again, thank you so much and I will be so happy to give you a reference anytime and will be passing on your name to my friends. In fact, I plan to use your company again. Please pass on my thanks and gratitude to your team.

  • Dear Curt,

    First, I will repeat what I told you over the telephone. I am so impressed with the quality of your work. Second, you have made me very happy, and perhaps more importantly you have enabled me to drive into my driveway with pride. When I drove in on Friday night, I was so thrilled with your creative landscaping. I wanted to start yelling at my neighbors, "Get out of your houses and come over and see what has happened here!!" My better judgment prevented me from making a spectacle or perhaps it was fear that some neighbors who still harbored a grudge against the prior appearance of my outdoor landscape would do me serious bodily harm. Either way, I have remained quietly proud and grateful. I sense the collective animosity towards me dissipating. THANK YOU for improving my standing in the neighborhood.


    - A. Crane Alexandria, VA

  • The Independence crew recently finished a "hardscape" job at our home in Mason Neck involving building brick and timber stairs, replacing rotted railroad ties, and installing over 200 feet of 6 x 6 landscape timbers as driveway and planter borders. What a transformation! I can now reach my backyard by a set of classy steps with brick inlay, rather than via wobbly pavers around a tree. The border job was challenging, varied, and often over uneven ground, and the results are spectacular. Robert, Perez and crew didn't miss a day, cleaned up as they went along, and consulted whenever they weren't crystal clear as to our desires. Lining the gravel driveway for over 30 yards makes the entrance to the house classy. Returning two gravel beds to lawn cleaned up the look considerably.


    The sod the crew expertly installed sod cut from the farms that morning. Can't ask for fresher than that. Chad stopped by after work every day to check on progress and make sure we were satisfied. We got four bids, including two from the area's biggest contractors. The Independence bid was tied with one of the big guys for least expensive, but they didn't charge for the plan--and it was much better. I've already given two recommendations to friends. Well done!


    - Lorna and Jim M. Mason Neck

  • Chad, Please extend our thanks to the team for their awesome work! The house now feels like a home, and brings lots of complements from the neighbors. Bring people by anytime for a recommendation, we are now thinking about re-doing the back yard soon!!!


    - Betty, Anita, and Ted B., Kingstowne, VA

  • Dear Curt,

    This is an embarrassingly belated, but nonetheless sincere thank you for the transformation you have brought to our backyard. Although we are only partway through our plans, I do want you to know how much your hard work and dedication have meant to us. We could not have been more impressed with your professionalism, attention to detail, and your immediate response to any concerns of ours. You always gave advice that led to the best possible outcome. Your employees are a delight and skilled beyond our wildest expectations. Our patio and stone walls are a work of art - we are longing for spring to arrive, so we can make good use of the area-it looks so beautiful I fear we may need to replace what I know view as ugly, old furniture! The dry creek bed has helped channel the flooding down into the woods and looks amazing even when it is dry. By the way, thanks for adding the plants to give us a hint of what is yet to come. I can't wait to talk about what to plant. Think dog-resistant... although the situation may be hopeless.


    You should be quite proud of the business you have built. There are few that match you in timely completion of work, creativity, honesty, and dependability. I have no doubt that we made a wise choice in asking you to take charge of our landscaping needs. There may be bigger names in the area, but none of those come close to you as far as I am concerned-and we have dealt with most of them.


    When I walk the dogs around the neighborhood, I see the work others have done and I smile because ours looks so much better! Thanks again for all you have done and for all I know you will do in the future. It is a joy to work with you and we are looking forward to seeing you back here soon.


    - Cynthia & Charles, Alexandria, VA

  • We can't speak highly enough about the professional and courteous customer service that Independence Landscape has brought to our landscaping projects. Chad and his crew are incredibly easy to work with and offer great solutions for our needs. We will continue to use them for future projects and recommend them to all who are looking for personalized landscaping services.


    - Jay N., Kingstowne, VA

  • Chad,

    We wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the recently completed work on our property. The quality of the work was first rate, and met our every expectation. Furthermore, every phase of the entire project was handled with the highest degree of professionalism, from your initial site visit to the clean up when the work was finished. It was a pleasure dealing with you and all of the members of your highly competent and courteous work crews. We look forward to dealing with Independence again in the future, and would not hesitate to recommend your firm to others.


    - Judy & Paul C., Springfield, VA

  • Curt,

    I LOVE the job you did - it's beautiful, clean, tidy and neat. It will be a perfect presentation for resale. Please ADD me to your reference list. You're the best. Forgot to mention it was done on time (in fact, ahead of time and on budget!)


    - Heidi S., Old Town Alexandria, VA

  • Dear Curt,
    How wonderful. To drive up tonight from work and see the house look so absolutely great was a real joy. Thank you so very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.


    - Andi B., Alexandria, VA

  • Chad & Curt,

    I have used many different landscapers and mowing companies in the past, but now that I have used Independence, I am done looking! You guys are professional and courteous and do a wonderful job. The pricing is always competitive and the work is of the highest quality. Thanks for everything guys!!


    - Tracy D., Alexandria, VA

  • My wife and I are extremely happy that we chose Independence Landscape for all of our landscape, gardening, and lawn care needs. Chad and Curt have done an excellent job with fulfilling our goals within both our time frame and budget. Our yard was in need of help and things are shaping up very nicely. We look forward to our continued work with you well into the future.


    - Dave & Lori M., Alexandria, VA

  • Curt,

    I want to thank you for the amazing job your landscape crew did. The transformation that has taken place on my property is absolutely astonishing. Your craftsmanship, knowledge, and reliability are unmatched. Throughout the years I have had several landscape companies working on my property, now that I have found Independence, I will never have to worry about looking for another landscaper.


    Robert and your crew were GREAT!!! You are very fortunate to have someone like Robert working for you. Robert is very knowledgeable and has excellent people skills. He answered all my questions in detail and explained everything he was doing. My landscape looks so great, all of my neighbors have been asking for your number. I look forward to the years ahead of INDEPENDENCE LANDSCAPE taking care of all my landscape needs!!


    - Ms. Gallagher, Alexandria, VA

  • I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding customer service and the excellent work you and your company have done for me. Over the years I have found that it is very difficult to be able to rely on any contractor, especially in Northern Virginia. For the past several years your company has exceeded my expectations of customer service, professionalism, and dependability. In addition, the work that your crews do is absolutely first class. I continue to tell all my friends about your company and will do so well into the future.


    - Howard L., Lorton, VA

  • Chad and Curt are great guys; they work hard. They deliver on their promises. In their commitment to excellence and integrity, they are professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and skilled. In addition to reliable mowing/edging and seasonal lawn maintenance, they installed a walkway in front of our house. Chad worked patiently with me to choose pavers and design. The finished walkway is awesome. We waited a long time for it and we considered several builders, but I'm glad we chose Independence. I fully recommend them.
