French Drains: The Industrial Innovation That is Still Used Today
as sewage systems and indoor plumbing have evolved, plumbers and engineers throughout history have devised ever-changing designs to make cities and agricultural areas drain more efficiently. You may not consider proper drainage a crucial issue, but without it, city streets can flood with stagnant water and crops can drown in the fields. Andy’s Sprinkler can install French drains in your yard to facilitate better drainage so that your lawn can flourish.
How a French Drain Can Benefit You
French drains use gravity and a clever design to direct excess water away from your yard so that your lawn does not become too saturated to drain properly. A trench is dug at a gentle slope with a perforated pipe resting at the bottom. The trench is filled in with gravel, and then recovered with your lawn. The result is a drainage system that allows water to flow freely through the pipe and away from your yard. First used by the French in the 1800s, these drains are still a fantastic solution for many water drainage problems.
