French Drainage Systems
French drainage systems are often used to eliminate standing water and prevent flooding. We will build a French drainage system that works for your home and its draining needs. A French drainage system will last for years with little maintenance or repairs needed. In many cases, a French drain is built to keep water away from the foundation of a house, but they also work great in situations where there is standing water in your yard. They allow water to drain away from any home, keeping it safe from flooding and protecting the yard from saturation.
A French drain is a trench that is a bit sloped and filled with gravel and a perforated pipe, which work to keep water away from your home. Rather than only taking water from a single spot, a French drain takes it from the whole length of the drain, and can help to drain it. Water flows into the trench and then the pipe, being released away from the house. The water can be directed to a number of areas, such as a drainage ditch or a dry well, depending on your situation.
