Concerned about water accumulating on your residential or commercial property after heavy rain? We understand the dangers that water retention can pose to your home and finances. That's why we offer state-of-the-art drainage system installation to help protect your home, garden, and wallet.

At S J Masonry, we've been serving residents of Lancaster, Delaware, Chester, and Montgomery counties for over 20 years. Our drainage solutions include rain gardens, infiltrator storm water management systems, sump pumps, French drains, and other water drainage systems.

Why Invest in Water Retention Systems?

Excessive water on your property isn't just a visual nuisance: It’s a potential catalyst for severe issues such as soil erosion, basement flooding, and even foundation damage – all of which can often be expensive to fix. With S J Masonry's eco-friendly water retention systems, you can design your dream landscape while keeping your property secure, resilient, and above all -- dry.

Types of Water Drainage Solutions

At SJ Masonry, we offer a suite of targeted services to address your specific water retention need:

Rain Gardens

We excel at creating beautifully integrated rain gardens that enhance your property's appeal while effectively managing excess water. These gardens serve as a natural filter for runoff, supporting local biodiversity and contributing to a healthier environment.

Infiltrator Stormwater Systems

Our cutting-edge infiltrator stormwater systems are engineered to disperse water evenly into the ground, promoting rapid absorption while protecting the soil from erosion. They are a discreet and efficient way to manage stormwater runoff and prevent waterlogging.

Sump Pumps

Ideal for properties with frequent basement flooding issues, our sump pumps work tirelessly to remove accumulated water and direct it away from your property. Our excavation experts ensure seamless installation for a dry, secure basement environment.

French Drain Systems

French drains are a cornerstone of our water retention services. They provide an invisible yet powerful means of guiding water away, ensuring that your property remains dry and structurally sound -- even during heavy rainfall.

Storm Catch Basin Retention

Our catch basin solutions act as a first line of defense against property flooding. Storm basins trap sediment and debris before they can enter your drainage system.

Custom Landscape Drainage Designs

We specialize in personalized landscape drainage designs that are tailored to the unique contours and needs of your property. Our skilled professionals at S J Masonry use their excavation expertise to create systems that are not only functional, but aesthetically pleasing.

Environmental Protection through Drainage Solutions & Storm Water Management

Our comprehensive drainage and water retention solutions do more than just manage excess water: They also play a critical role in treating runoff pollutants that can harm the local ecosystem. For instance, our strategically designed rain gardens utilize the soil’s filtration capacity to trap contaminants and sediments that are typically carried by stormwater. This ensures that cleaner water seeps into the aquifers, limiting the impact on nearby water bodies.

Likewise, the storm water management systems we install are instrumental in optimizing the soil’s inherent treatment capabilities. By providing a greater surface area for the runoff to disperse, these systems allow the soil microbes more time and space to naturally break down pollutants. This biological degradation process is essential in maintaining the ecological balance and preventing the accumulation of harmful substances in our environment.

We are committed to eco-friendly practices in every project we undertake, ensuring that our solutions benefit both our clients and the planet.
