Landscape drainage walkways are another unique Shady Grove design that embodies both form and function. These walkways catch and reroute standing water, while providing a beautiful and clean place to walk. Popular in the space between houses, drainage walkways are basically a stepping stone path installed over the top of a French drain system. They function much like a dry creek bed, but allow for walking on top. Drainage walkways are not effective in areas of high water movement as the small gravel between the rocks may become displaced if a river of water flows over it.
