Send your rainwater underground with a French drain!
Controlling and directing all of your home’s gutter system runoff can be quite a challenge. Your installer must be meticulous in planning and constructing a system that completely surrounds the sloped portion of your roof. Then, the gutters will route to their respective downspouts. However, homeowners must be wary of additional rainwater management issues, such as if rainwater pools in a flowerbed, on your lawn, or splashes near your foundation.
Perhaps there is one solution you haven’t considered: sending the runoff underground.
An effective rain gutter system combined with an underground drainage system can guide water away from your foundation and disperse it back into the soil gradually and easily. The most common way to direct runoff away from your lawn and underneath your yard is by constructing a French drain.
A French drain is a network of pipes laid in trenches dug beneath the ground through which water runoff can flow. This structure can be attached to your downspouts and will work seamlessly with your existing gutters.
With the installation of a French drain system, your runoff will now flow down your roof, into your gutter system, through the downspouts, into your underground pipes, and out of sight and away from your home!
