Say Oui (Yes) to French Drains! - Rhine Landscaping

Say Oui (Yes) to French Drains!

Are you experiencing any drainage issues? Is your landscape retaining water or does your basement constantly flood after a heavy rain? If so, French drains could be the solution to your problems. These drains remain the most common drainage system installed in residential landscapes across the United States. This is because French drainage systems are incredibly versatile and reliable.

What happens to a foundation if the water is not kept away?

  • Water can cause certain soils that can expand up to 35%
  • Water seeps into the ground and penetrates the parts of your foundation that is under the ground, causing cracking
  • The soil underneath your home can take on water, which puts added pressure on your foundation and causes cracking
  • Cracking can cause walls to crack and thousands of dollars in damages

French drains make sure water stays away from your home’s foundation and, most importantly, out of your basement!
