When it comes to outdoor drainage, the type of drain that’s best is different for each lawn/property layout.

One popular option is the French drain. A French drain consists of a trench, a perforated PVC pipe, permeable wrapping, and a layer of gravel or rock to redirect water away from an area. This helps with soil over-saturated with water and prevents erosion. French drains help prevent water from pooling up in your yard or around the foundation of your house.

French drains work because gravity carries the excess water down to the path of least resistance and through the gravel into the drainage pipe underneath. From there, the water is carried to a street for proper disposal. So, if your issue is water collecting in a low area of your property, this might be the solution for you.
