French Drain & Yard Drainage

Yard Drain: Channel Storm Water Away from Problem Areas

Drainage problems in your yard can lead to unsightly pooling and even mold or water damage in or around your home.

If your neighbor’s land stands at a higher elevation than yours, you may be experiencing problems with excessive moisture on your property. Water from your neighbor’s property may be running down the slope and spilling onto your property.

Additionally, low spots in your yard can pool water. You need better yard drainage.

French drains provide an easy channel for water to flow through, redirecting surface water and groundwater away from an area.

Plan the location to reroute pooling and excess water

Dig a trench along the outside of your footing

Lay the pipe and cover the pipe with washed gravel
