How French Drains Work

French drains are a popular option for ridding an area of excess rainwater. It is never a good idea to allow rainwater to collect in an area. French drains consist of perforated pipes that collect and divert rainwater away from a home or property.  The exit point is directed away from your neighbor’s property and away from anything important. A French drain installed by Sposato Irrigation will be fully wrapped with gravel and topped decorative stone or sod by our landscape department. French drains are often used in basements that suffer from drainage issues.
