Drainage…it happens to everyone

  • While not the most exciting thing proper drainage is key for any property
  • Water always flows downhill 🙂
  • Proper slope away from foundations above ground and effective foundation drains underground
  • French drains are intended to resolve water that is under the surface.  Only if the stone is exposed all the way to the surface can they be used for surface water issues.
  • Water will not cross drainage stone
  • Proper culvert sizing and pitch is critical to proper function
  • As a general rule corrugated black drainage pipe while less expensive never performs as well or as long as PVC/hard pipe
