French Drains Installation in Cooksville

You have worked hard for your Cooksville home and should do everything you can to protect it. Basement flooding can turn a little rain into a big problem. Flooding can quickly turn into mold, mildew, and property damage. But one way to protect your Cooksville home is to call Rhine Landscaping for a French drain installation.

How Do French Drains Work?

A French drain is made up of a gravel-filled trench with a slotted pipe on top. These drains are used to redirect surface and ground water away from your home to a specified area around your property. These drains are typically used around your home’s foundation in order to keep water from flooding your basement and causing foundation damage. French drains direct water toward the lowest part of your property by using a perforated pipe to catch the water. Unlike surface drains, French drains collect water throughout the property instead of through one opening. These drains also help prevent water from pooling around your property causing damage to your beautiful landscaping.

French Drain Installations

The first step to any French drain installation is to determine the best location for it. When working with our on-staff designers, your French drain will be perfectly placed around your property. Our designers will also work to ensure your properly is graded at the proper angle so the drain is able to catch as much water as possible. We will also make sure your drain is at the proper depth for optimal drainage. Our crew will check city codes and ensure there is nothing in the way of installing your new drains like electrical or water lines underground. After everything is checked, we will begin to excavate around your property and put the drain in place. Once the drain is put in the trench, it will be time to fill in the gravel before place topsoil and sod over the drain to make sure it blends in with the surround property. Your new drain will work to keep your property and your home dry all year round!
