How a French Drain Works

French drains provide an easy channel for water to flow through.

 

Water runs into a gravel-filled trench, then

into perforated pipe at the bottom of the trench. 

Water travels freely through the pipe, which empties a safe distance from the house or business.

When do you need  a drain?

When you have a problem with surface water, such as a soggy lawn or a driveway that washes out

If water is getting into your basement.

If you’re building a retaining wall on a hillside
