French drains are trench drainage systems that are carefully filled with gravel or rock and perforated piping. They are popular and recommended lawn drainage systems, especially for residential properties, because the pipes get rid of unwanted, standing water and send ground and surface water to a well-established drain-off area.
French drains are also often called basement drains, drain tiles, weeping tiles, footing drains, and perimeter drains.
Benefits of Installing a Custom French Drain
In the problem area, a deep trench needs to be dug. If the French drain is being installed around the foundation of a building, it must be at least 5 inches below the foundation to make sure water can not get under the building.
The French drain is made up of putting filter fabric in the trench, partially filling the trench with gravel, installing a 4″ S&D perforated pipe wrapped in fabric on top of the gravel, and then partially filling the trench with gravel again.
