How To Install French Drains

Installing a French drain is an effective way to redirect surface water and protect your basement or property from water damage. 

The installation process includes; 

  • digging trenches
  • laying gravel
  • and covering the entire system with soil. 

Contact Attic Pros experts for more details on the process. Want to know about the costs?

Well, the cost of the project may vary depending on the size of the area and the materials needed, so it’s important to get a price quote from a professional before starting your project. Many businesses such as Attic Pros provide free estimates and high-quality inspections to ensure you get the best solution for your needs. When fixing a French drain, using quality materials is essential in order to ensure that it will be durable enough to withstand harsh weather conditions. 

Can I Plant Grass Over A French Drain?

The short answer is yes, you can plant grass over a French Drain. However, there are some important considerations to keep in mind before doing so. 

 
  • For starters, the type of grass that is planted should be appropriate for the drainage conditions of the area (for example, if it’s very wet). Additionally, a careful choice of grass variety should be made to make sure that it is not too aggressive and will not overgrow the French Drain system. 
 
  • It’s also important to ensure that any underground utilities, such as power or plumbing lines, are properly placed away from the French Drain before planting. Otherwise, they may get damaged when digging or mowing around the drain. 
 
  • In terms of installation, it is best to use a topsoil mix that is well-draining to prevent water from pooling on the surface over the drain. If this happens, it will block the flow of water and create an area prone to flooding or other drainage problems.
 
  • Finally, for ongoing maintenance, it’s important to keep the grass well-trimmed and mowed in order to maintain the flow of water through the French Drain. Additionally, it’s also important to check for any clogging or blockages from time to time, as this could cause drainage problems.
