How To Prevent Basement Leaks
A basement leak can be a costly and hazardous problem for your home. Here are some guidelines for protecting your basement from water seepage and leaks. Plant Away from the House When you think about it, plant roots are designed to travel deep into the soil to search for nutrients and water; this also makes them a great pathway for rainwater to permeate the ground around your house. In order to prevent this seepage from reaching your basement, be sure to plant your garden a few feet away from the house.
