The purpose of a french drain is to collect and divert subsurface water over a large area to a safe location. French drains in Frisco, Texas are typically installed between homes and along property lines in newer subdivisions.
Installing a french drain is often times the most expensive drainage solution because it requires the removal of large amounts of soil, large perforated drainage pipes and heavy gravel that essentially creates an underground void to collect and drain water.
Landscape & Yard Drainage
Landscape and yard drainage systems are much less complex than french drains and are effective in removing standing water from low spots in the lawn or areas of landscaping beds where water is contained by flower bed borders and retaining walls.
In most cases, a catch basin with a surface grate is installed in the problem area and attached to an underground drain pipe and pop-up emitter that discharges water in a safe area.
Gutter Downspout Drains
Gutters and downspouts move rainwater from a structures rooftop to the ground. This large amount of rainwater will pool on the ground and sometimes seep under the home causing foundation damage if there’s no place for it to go.
The most common solution to this problem is to install adapters on each downspout and connect to an underground drain pipe that will move water away from the home and foundation. This concept is similar to that of the landscape and yard drainage solution above where unwanted water is discharged with a pop-up emitter.
As you can see, drainage systems can range from simple to complex. Selecting a system for your property is crucial to the effectiveness of your drainage solution and investment.
