If you have a soggy lawn or continual standing water, the solution may be a French drain. A French drain is excellent at collecting and channeling water, diverting it safely away from your home or yard.
If you have any slope in your landscape, you can be sure that water runoff will flow downhill, and by the quickest route possible. If your yard is flat and there is nowhere for water to run, then without proper drainage you will face constant standing water especially if the underlying soil is clay based.

The French drain is conceptually very simple. In its most basic form, a French drain is a slightly sloped trench filled with pea size gravel surrounding perforated pipe that’s buried underground. This simple yet effective design helps divert excess water away from your home.
