french drains

French drains are a vital solution for residential homes seeking effective water management. A square-shaped trench is dug to accommodate a slotted pipe, which is installed with a gentle 1% pitch to ensure efficient water flow. The trench is emptied of native soils and lined with filter fabric before filling with clean stone, which promotes optimal drainage and prevents clogging. Backfilling with clean stone maintains the integrity of the drainage system. Once completed, the trench is topped with sod to blend seamlessly into the yard. Properly sizing the pipes based on anticipated water volume is crucial, as is opting for a slotted pipe rather than a knife-cut design to prevent sediment infiltration and ensure long-term effectiveness. French drains thus provide a reliable method to safeguard residential properties against water damage while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the landscape.
