A French drain, also commonly referred to as drain tile, entails installing drainage pipe at the bottom of a trench filled with stone. With a proper French drain installation, water is routed to a designated area on the property. While many homeowners may view French drain system installation as a simple DIY project, an improperly installed French drain system can do more harm than good by sending water to the wrong location and cause problems. Let our well-versed yard drainage crews handle the hard work by excavating a trench, installing the drain tile, rock, etc. and utilizing laser-guided equipment to ensure the ideal slope is kept through the entire system. This leads to maximum water flow to the ideal location on your property, allowing you to enjoy your yard throughout the seasons.
Another approach to solving yard drainage that brings a more natural appearance to your property is a dry creek bed. The construction process is similar in which a trench is dug, but instead of drain tile our crew will install varying sizes of rocks and boulders to create the aesthetic of a creek in the wilderness. The creek will have the capability to collect and absorb water into the soil beneath during rain events and snow melt. When there is a large volume of water, this particular drainage system will generally work in conjunction with your property’s existing grade to move water down a slope to a designated drainage area.
Most yard drainage issues are a result of water making its way through your gutter system and being dispersed into the grass or a landscape bed that is conducive for water to pool up. An ideal remedy for this situation is installing an underground downspout extension with drain tile and possibly adding a catch basin to direct the water away from the area so your foundation isn’t compromised.
