French Drains

A French drain is a highly effective underground drainage system that pulls water away from notoriously wet areas of your property. First, we install a trench that is encapsulated with drainage fabric and add drainage stone. Next we install a perforated pipe and add more drainage stone. Finally, we cover it back over with soil and grass.

A channel drain uses similar techniques but diverts surface water through a grate.

“We trusted them to install a French drain system which we had not realized we needed—at least not until we met with Mark for initial lawn care estimates. Since the drains were installed last Spring (2019), the lawn is lush, thriving and beautiful. If we had gone with either of the two other companies’ lawn assessments, we would have invested in a continued mud pond and no return.”
