In the above picture no landscaping or special stone was used for the French Drain. Initially it won’t look great, but in this case the French Drain was in an area that got a lot of sun. The grass will spread and put out runners and eventually cover the French Drain. This is a good thing. It produces a “Thatch” filter on top of the drain and helps keep the drain from clogging and greatly increases the longevity of the Drainage System. The trick is not to put dirt on top of the French Drain Gravel. This is a big mistake and will reduce the effectiveness of the French Drain. Just be patient and the grass will cover. We had a customer that had success speeding up the growth process by sprinkling grass seed into the French Drain Gravel.
