French Drains

French drains are an elegant solution to a common Florida landscape concern: properties affected by the water table.

Things that are plentiful in Central Florida: sunlight, visitors, wildlife, and moisture.

Landscaping and hardscaping can help control the water on the ground surface. However, it’s a lot harder to keep track of the water under the surface – the groundwater – and that’s actually the stuff Florida property owners need to worry about.

Excess groundwater is an issue throughout Central Florida. Rain and other factors affect the water table, then permanent puddles and other landscape blemishes can form.

This excess groundwater can cause damage if not properly redirected away from homes and buildings.

French drains ensure that groundwater has proper channels to leave your landscape.

What are French Drains?

Essentially, they are drainage tunnels inset with a pipe. A surface layer of gravel or decorative rocks acts as a filter. The pipe redirects water away from your home, into an irrigation system or storm drain.

As a result, unwanted damp areas never get a chance to develop. This is particularly important in Florida.
