Drainage is an extremely important part of keeping your property protected from floods, heavy rains, or even just melting snow. There are many different types of drainage systems, and one of the most common is known as the “trench drain” or French drain. These drains involve a perforated pipe buried in a layer of gravel or some other form of a porous medium. This allows water absorbed by soil to quickly be gathered in one place, where it can be whisked away to where it can be safely disposed of. These drains can be small or large, but they have one thing in common—they need to be dug into low areas of your property to be most effective, and that means you’ll need some form of excavation to configure it properly.
How to Build a French Drain
Contrary to what their name implies, the French drain may or may not have actually been invented in France. Instead, the name comes from Henry Flagg French, a lawyer and Assistant US Treasury Secretary who described these types of drains, making them popular. While materials have advanced considerably since his time, the same basic principles hold true.
We construct all types of various French drains, including:
- Curtain drains
- Filter drains
- Collector drains
- Fin drains
- Dispersal drains
French drains require a few common things—a perforated line which allows water to easily and quickly pass inside while keeping the gravel surrounding it out, a layer of gravel or another medium to secure the line, and a grade which the water can flow down to direct the water away properly. We’ll work with you to ensure your drainage plans are both effective and feasible with your current land layout in order to help you keep your home or business protected.
