Do I Need to Install a French Drain?
Are you having a problem with surface water collecting in your yard? If you are having lawn or mulch wash out or if you are building a retaining wall on a hill near your home, you might consider installing a French drain, which will provide an easy channel for rainwater to flow through in the direction of your choosing. Adding a French drain will protect your home from unwanted pooling water and keep your lawn from washing away.

Trench Drains and Channel Drains
While French drains deal with water issues that are below the surface, trench drains divert water away from a surface. Trench drains, also known as channel drains, are lined with concrete and are sloped away from buildings to divert water. Trench drains are often used to manage rain water, especially where there are few opportunities for absorption into the ground, such as around pool decks, parking lots, driveways and walkways. There are many applications for trench drains for commercial properties in the area, and they even work well in multi-level structures.
Factors That Determine the Type of Channel Drain to Manage Your Drainage Issue
How do you decide what type of drain is needed on your property? There are quite a few calculations that go into determining the size and slope of the drain that will work best. The drainage pros at Whaley Landscape Services, Inc. have 14 years of experience with helping customers choose a drain. First, we'll have to determine how much water will need to be drained from your property. Channel drains are great for keeping water from flowing into your garage, basement, or parking lot. We will measure the amount of runoff and the slope of the surface. From there, Whaley Landscape Services, Inc. will determine the best trench or channel drain to install to manage your runoff water and keep your property dry. We'll choose a grate that can handle the flow capacity for your project to be sure that the proper channel drain will be installed to manage your runoff.
