How Do French Drains Work?

A French drain is a gravel-filled trench that includes a slotted pipe. These drains are used to direct and remove surface water and groundwater from a specific area. They are typically used near the home’s foundation to help prevent basement flooding. French drains direct surface water toward the lowest part of your property and allow the water to seep through the perforated pipe and away from your home. These drains differ from other surface drains because they collect the water over the entire length of the drain instead of one particular area. French drains help to prevent water from collecting and pooling in specific areas and saturating the ground.

French Drain Installation

The first step of installed a French drain is to determine the best location for it. Working with our on-staff drainage system designers to choose the right spot for your new system. Our designers will ensure your drains are properly placed at the correct angle and depth. Our designers will also check the city codes and make sure there is no underground lines that could be damaged by the installation process. We will also measure the grading of your property so the drain is placed at the proper angle. This step is followed by excavation. Our team will carefully excavate your property and put the French drain into place. Once the drain is in place, we will fill the trench with gravel to keep the drain safe before covering it with topsoil and new sod. With Rhine Landscaping on your side, your home and property will stay dry all year long!
