French drains are probably the most common drainage systems and options used in residential properties. Even commercial ones can benefit highly from them if installed in the right locations and areas. But what are French drains in specific? Most people seem to ask this question since there are too many options to consider, which usually leads to confusion when choosing the most suitable alternative for a space. Essentially, they are the so known trench drains filled with a perforated pipe and gravel. The idea is to have your water drain from your yard without extra additions and simply let natural processes handle it.

At Wellington Pro Sprinkler & Drainage Systems, we have been working with them for over a decade, and while they are quite common, we understand people’s confusion when it is time to use them. This is why we like to do our best to keep it simple.

In most cases, you use French drains to remove excess water from the low areas of your property. For instance, if you have a garden outdoors with a certain level of inclination or elevation, you want to take advantage of this natural section. The trench will allow for it and remove all the water while preventing it from remaining in the low parts.

On the other hand, you can benefit from the system when you have several wet areas in your outdoors. Some properties due to their soil type face more wet areas and excess water, even in regular or normal amounts. French drains can come in handy in this case and help with all the runoff regardless of the property and type of design you have for your outdoors. Allow us to guide you through this carefully.

Is There Any Situation in Which French Drains Are Not Welcome?

When you are not dealing with heavy rain or lots of excess water, you want to keep French drains for those projects and moments in which you truly need some extra drainage and improve the whole system. In case yours is the regular draining and needs, then it will be too much.

French drains use your lawn and normal soil to drain all water to the right locations by dealing with the water already drifting away from your home or property. However, this is because the way your lawn is contributes to the process, and all the ponds or stagnant water can be easily handled thanks to the drains.

When you don’t have an excess that can justify how you use the trenches, you should stick to the common surface drainage system or other drains.

Our team will help you determine your situation and work with you around it so that you know you have the most efficient system in place. We will work hard to consider your expenses and make sure you get a drainage solution that works for the short and long term.

How Do We Install French Drains?

When you decide to take this step and work around those drains, you should be aware that this will take longer and more resources than some people try to sell you.

First, we always make sure to properly inspect the location and plan the project. We don’t want to mistakenly work around a place that isn’t a good fit for the system. Moreover, we want to save as much time and resources as we can on your end.

Second, we will set and prepare the location by bringing all tools, equipment, and materials. Our team will start locating the lowest point in the property so that we know where the French drain will be installed.

Third, once we have all the locations identified and prepared, we will work on digging the trench to proceed with the catch basin installation.

Fourth, with the main elements and materials installed, we can proceed with the landscape fabric and gravel for the trench and French drain. But this is right before we lay down the pipe in the trench we have dug for it.

Finally, we test the flow and how well it drains all the water. This is right before we get all the gravel and close the trench with the cloth we have to install to complete it.
