Expert Yard Drainage Solutions: French Drains & Channel Drains Installation

Drainage issues can wreak havoc on your lawn, resulting in a flooded lawn and plenty of headaches. Investing in drainage solutions with Martinez Brother’s NC Landscaping can help protect your residential and commercial property from poor drainage damage.

French Drain Installation & Service

A French drain will collect any unwanted water on your property and redirect it.

It consists of several trenches filled with gravel, rocks, or other materials. This allows water to flow freely down through the gravel toward a drainage outlet.

Many home and business owners opt to install french drains because they provide effective solutions to drain water without having to pay for excavation or piped water systems. French drains also have the flexibility to adjust their size and shape over time to best suit any changing drainage needs that may occur.

Factors to Consider with French Drain Installation

French drains are installed at a specific depth depending on the type of soil drainage needs, and local regulations.

When you hire Martinez Brother’s NC Landscaping to install your French drain, we will check local regulations to ensure it is installed to code. Many French drains need to be at least 10 inches deep to work properly. Sometimes, they will require deeper trenches if there is standing water near the foundation.

There are different types of French drains depending on your needs and the terrain of your property. If you live in an area with a high water table, you may want to opt for a sloped trench train. A dry well drain is often more suitable for areas with a low water table.

If you’re unsure which type of French drain would best suit your property, let the experts at Martinez Brother’s NC Landscaping survey your property to help you determine which type of French drain you could benefit from the most. We can install the proper French drain to better maintain your residential and commercial property and prevent drainage issues.

Drain Pipes

Drain pipes are similar to French drains because they use a pipe to move water.

But, with a drain pipe, an underground drain connects to a pipe in a different spot of the lawn. The pipe then works to pump water from a low point in the yard that tends to flood to a spot that remains relatively dry.

Channel Drain Installation & Service

Channel drains are used to capture surface water runoff.

They are typically installed along walkways, driveways, patios, and other surfaces where water needs to be redirected away from the home.

Channel drains are installed in the pavement and help to collect the water and redirect it before it pools. An effective channel drain ensures that the water flow goes into an appropriate drainage system. Many channel drains are just one part that connect to other parts of a complete drainage system. This helps to direct excess water away from the home.

Installing channel drains can help protect homes from flooding, as well as improve safety by preventing slips and falls if there are wet surfaces around.

FAQ About Yard Drainage Systems

Inadequate grading, clogged gutters, and downspouts can all lead to poor yard drainage. Any hard surfaces that don’t allow for water absorption can also be to blame.

It is often not recommended to try to install any type of drainage system on your own. There is digging and other work that needs to be done that should only be handled by professionals.

It’s best to consult with a professional who has experience with yard drainage. They will have the necessary tools and knowledge to properly assess any underlying issues and develop a plan to get your lawn in good shape.
