Ways to get rid of standing water on your driveway

Standing water on your driveway isn’t good because it can cause algae to grow on your driveway and make it look dirty and unappealing. During the winter, water can seep into cracks in your driveway, then freeze which causes the crack to become bigger. Here are some ways to get rid of standing water on your driveway:

  • Move gutters away from driveway: If your gutters are pointed towards your driveway, that is most likely where the water is coming from. Moving your gutters away from your driveway helps to prevent water from getting on your driveway.
  • Level out low spots in driveway: Water tends to pool in low spots on your driveway. Leveling out the low spots in your driveway will help to prevent water from pooling throughout your driveway.
