It is important for any lawn to have proper drainage, as standing water can destroy areas of a lawn, as well as trees and shrubs in the area. Standing water on patios and recreational surfaces can also lead to degradation of the surfaces. The following will be a pros and cons comparison of three different types of lawn drainage: French Drains vs Catch Basins vs Channel Drains. These can help you narrow down which is right for your specific needs.
Pros and Cons Comparison:
French Drains vs Catch Basins vs Channel Drains
These three types of drains can be quite effective in certain situations, but it is important to know which one will fit your individual needs and the needs of your lawn or patio. Our team of specialists can help walk you through the process of choosing and installing your preferred type of drainage.
A French drain is a type of drain that involves digging a trench and filling it with a well-draining substrate and a pipe which will collect the water and funnel it off to a better location.
Catch basins are installed in the lowest part of a lawn to “catch” all the runoff that comes from the roof of the house, patios, and higher areas of the lawn. These may require another type of channel or drainage to direct the water into the basin.
Channel Drains are an effective way to direct water from a hard surface such as a driveway or patio. These work well for preventing water from collecting in or near a garage, on sidewalks, or on pool patios.
Whether you are looking to combat swampy areas of your lawn, keep water off your patios and sidewalks, or channel excess water away from a garden, these choices cover several needs and circumstances. Our team of professionals can walk you through choosing the right type of drainage for your specific needs, as well as installation and maintenance of whatever you choose.
