Simply put, a French drain is a trench dug into your yard with a pipe that drains water away and then is covered in decorative gravel. Think of a French drain as a gutter for your lawn. It redirects water and stops it from puddling or pooling in your grass.
The pipes we use for French drain installations are typically easy flow pipes about 10 feet in length. Drains are dug with a simple process. We dig the trench in a direction away from your home or business and do so by sloping the trench down by one inch for every 8-10 feet in length. This gradual slope creates an easy way for the water to drain without eroding away any soil, as the dirt is protected by the gravel around the pipe.
French drains can also be used to route water away that may pool around the foundation of your building.
When water pools in your crawl space, or in some rare cases in Florida, a basement, that means the area around your building's foundation isn't properly draining. Our area of Florida has groundwater that can be quite close to the surface and if the hydrostatic pressure is too high, that's when you'll see water entering your building. Water inside your structure is never a good thing, as it can eventually weaken the foundation. A properly installed sump pump can redirect that excess water away from your residential or commercial building by transporting the water uphill to drain.
Water inside your home or office can cause mildew or even mold buildup, which can lead to hefty repair bills. At Lithia Landscape & Design, we can install sump pumps to help you avoid costly repairs that take a long time to complete.
