Tired of Having a Flooded Yard? Here’s the Solution!
Do you have standing water in your yard that makes it hard to mow, garden, or just enjoy having a lawn? This is a very common problem for Northeast Ohio homeowners, but the solution is so simple – French Drains!
What is a French Drain?
A French drain is a perforated pipe that we install just below the surface of your yard to collect water and move it away from your lawn. This helps eliminate the standing, stagnate water in your yard that can otherwise stay put for weeks.
Why Are They Called French Drains?
This drainage system is named after their inventor, Henry Flagg French, who created the first French drain in the mid-1800s.
How Do French Drains Work?
We install a network of these specialty pipes in your yard, so they act as a drainage system to move the water from your yard to either a storm sewer, retention system, or nearby body of water.
Are French Drains Worth It?
We think so, and so do our many happy customers who can now enjoy their yards! The system and the installation are relatively inexpensive, and they last up to 20 -30 years.
French Drain Maintenance
So, they are affordable, they last decades, and they’re low maintenance! The only maintenance needed is a recommended 5-year inspection to make sure there are no roots growing in the pipes. If there are roots, we can easily remedy that, but if not, then you are good to go!
