A French drain is an effective way to address drainage issues on your property. It consists of a trench filled with gravel and a perforated pipe that redirects water away from your home or yard. If you’re experiencing standing water or excess moisture on your property, you may need a French drain.
Signs that you might need a French drain
Water pooling in your yard
If you notice areas of standing water on your lawn or in your garden, this could be a sign that your property doesn’t have proper drainage. A French drain can help solve this problem by directing water away from the affected area.
Damp or musty odors
If you notice a musty or damp smell in your basement or crawl space, this could be a sign of excess moisture. A French drain can help mitigate the issue by redirecting water away from your home’s foundation.
Cracks in your foundation
If you notice cracks or gaps in your foundation, this could be a sign that water is putting pressure on your home’s structure. A French drain can help alleviate that pressure and prevent further damage.
If you notice areas of your yard where soil has washed away, this could be a sign of poor drainage. Installing a French drain can help prevent further soil erosion and protect your landscaping.
