French Drains are designed to cover large areas and move lots of water.  During a hard rain water will seep down through the gravel and into the Perforated French Drain Pipe that is buried under the gravel.  The water fills into the pipe and moves down hill to the desired Exit Point.  French Drains like the one in the picture above that are in the sun most of the day will have grass that overgrows the limestone.  The gravel will disappear over time.  The French Drain will continue to work even after the grass has grown over it.  A “Thatch Filter ” is made up of the grass that covers the French Drain.  The French Drain then has two filters.  First is the Neo-Prene Soc that comes around the Perforated French Drain Pipe.  Later when the grass grows over it, the French Drain then has a second Thatch Filter.  This ensures that the French Drain Pipe won’t clog over time with dirt, sand, or debris.  This only works with grass that does well in the sun like Bermuda or Tift.

Shade Grasses won’t grow up and through French Drain gravel.

Installing a French Drain by itself or as part of a Drainage System is a very fulfilling aspect of my job as owner of CMG Sprinklers and Drains.  Many times Drainage Problems have caused damage to homes or businesses.  Understandably the owners are stressed an unhappy.  Over the years French Drain installation has solved a broad range of problems caused by “Standing Water.”  French Drains have removed water from home foundations and stopped further water damage.  French Drains have protected and enhanced driveways and sidewalks.  French Drain Installation has also removed Standing Water from flowerbeds and yards that weren’t level.  Once we even solved a water flow problem where a customer in Chickasha had water tear off their garage door and take out the back wall of the garage.  A Double 6 inch French Drain across the hillside above the driveway solved the problem.  Providing piece of mind and safety to property is satisfying.  French Drain Installation Provides this!
