Well-Designed French Drains

A French Drain is one of the best drainage systems for residential properties. Originally, a French Drain is just dug as a mere ditch covered with rocks. During the 1800s, the term was made popular by a guy named Henry Flagg French, therefore the title "French drains." His version of the French drain included roofing tiles in the trenches to serve as drainage. Later on, these roofing tiles evolved to special perforated pipes (weeping tiles). Today, the trenches will often contain these perforated pipes surrounded by gravel or sand to help redirect the water flow efficiently.

When you hire us to install French drains in your property, we will create a custom design plan to address your drainage needs. For example, we identify the best spot for the drain exit to prevent flooding incidents in your driveway, sidewalk, landscape or your neighbor’s yard. Our people will inform you of the correct location options for installing your French drain system. We will also consider the size of the drainage to counter the expected volume of surface runoffs. We use permeable materials like non-woven fabricated filters and envelopes (can be gravel, sand, rock) to improve water flow.
