Do I Need a French Drain Installed?

A soggy lawn isn’t just inconvenient; it can also be a breeding ground for insects. Water that sits on your grass for too long can lead to unsightly mud puddles and even cause damage to your landscaping. To avoid this, you may want to consider a Seattle French drain installation, which channels water away from your lawn and towards a designated exit point.

French drains can be a great solution for areas where surface water accumulates, such as in basements, gardens, or yards. We can help you decide whether this drainage system is right for your home or commercial property. If you are experiencing any of the following issues, a French drain may be a good option for your home:

  • Water pooling around your home or in specific areas of your yard
  • Overly wet soil caused by poor drainage
  • Standing water in your basement or crawl space
  • Lawn and garden areas that remain soggy
  • Foundation damage that could be caused by excess water
  • Mud and dirt washing off of your property onto public land
  • Areas in your yard that are subject to runoff
  • Risk of mold and mildew due to standing water
  • Drying out a wetland area.

How We Install Seattle-based French Drain Systems

A French drain installation in Seattle requires a few basic steps. We assess the area and design a plan. We then dig a trench around the area, lay down a layer of fabric, place gravel into the trench, and add the drainage pipe. Finally, we fill the trench with gravel and soil and tamp it down.

i) Planning & Assessment:

Before any digging takes place, we assess the area and design a plan for the installation. We take into account factors such as grade, slope, soil type, and drainage patterns to ensure the most effective outcome. We also look for existing drainage systems, underground pipes, and utility lines to avoid any damage.

ii) Digging a Trench:

We dig a trench around the perimeter of the problem area. The minimum length and width of the trench should be 18 inches deep and 9 – 12 inches wide. We ensure the slope is consistent for the entire length of the trench so the water can flow away from the home.

iii) Line the Fabric & Gravel:

We place a layer of fabric at the bottom of the trench to help filter out any solids and debris. Gravel is then added to the trench and evenly distributed.

iv) Lay Drainage Pipe and Fill:

We lay a perforated drainage pipe into the gravel. The pipe is designed to direct pooling water away from the building foundation or problem area. We then fill the trench with gravel, fold and pin the fabric around the pipe, and finally, soil and tamp it down
