Regular inspections and maintenance are key to keep RainScaping solutions working. Set up a maintenance schedule and set reminders in your calendar to ensure your RainScaping solutions perform as intended. Take photos to track changes from season to season, and year to year.
Be sure to check on your RainScaping solution before rains begin in the fall, and before and after storm events, such as atmospheric rivers.
Replenish mulch to protect bare soils
Use erosion control measures if your project is not yet completed and/or plants are not yet established
Keep pipes and outlets free of debris
Double check to make sure everything is hooked up correctly
Address leaks and other issues promptly before damage occurs
When problems occur, intervention is needed. For many RainScaping solutions, you may be able to resolve the issue yourself with troubleshooting guidance in the RainScaping Guide. For more complex issues, or if the problem does not resolve, seek the services of a qualified professional.
