French Drains are a slightly sloped perforated pipe is buried in the ground surrounded by pea gravel and diverts water away from your home or other location to a more desirable place. French drains are located underground and not visible leaving your yard and other landscaping looking immaculate. A French drain’s primary function is to move water away from the foundation of your home.
Channel/Trench Drains are usually found within a driveway or along the edge of a patio, pool deck or walkway. Water drains through a visible grate, down into an underground pipe and drains out at the desired location. With a channel drain you are able to reduce or eliminate heavy run-off or standing water, especially during or following a torrential downpour. This also prevents erosion along paved area edges.
Downspout Adapters are another way to aid in moving water away from your home. These attach to your current gutter systems and divert the water away from your home or building.
