French Drain Services & Contractors in Fort Worth, TX
For the safety of your home’s foundation, one particular lawn and landscape method can do wonders: a French drain. The French drain services offered by the BNC Lawn Care team not only add an aesthetic element to your yard but also prevent water damage to your home’s basement or foundation.
A French drain is a perforated pipe laid underground within a trench, which is then covered with gravel or pebbles. When rain or excessive waterfalls on your lawn, the French drain works in three steps:
- The water filters into the trench through the gravel
- It then seeps into the perforated pipe
- The pipe feeds the water away from the home
This method, though simple, is proven effective. It has been implemented in homes and on landscapes for over fifty years now without much change in design. That long history ensures the French drain method is successful in preventing water damage.
Interior French Drain
You didn’t read that last paragraph wrong… French drains can be installed in homes. These are, naturally, called interior French drains. They are often installed in the basement of a home in a similar trench method, by collecting water before it can approach the exterior walls or foundation of the home and cause damage.
French Drain Installation Cost
After we approach the subject of French drain services with customers, we are often asked, what will the installation cost? It’s a valid question. Unfortunately, a solid estimate cannot be given until our contractors get on the property and assess the square footage where the French drain installation will take place. The cost cannot be determined without a thorough site examination.
