                    French Drainage Channel

French drains are primarily used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging building foundations. Alternatively, French drains may be used to distribute water, such as a septic drain field at the outlet of a typical septic tank sewage treatment system. French drains are also used behind retaining walls to relieve ground water pressure most of all gardens.

          An Introduction to Garden Drainage

Good drainage in the landscape is as important as proper irrigation. Too much water in landscaped Garden areas can result in numerous plant diseases and can even kill sensitive plants like expensive evergreens. Overly wet turf areas are prone to soil compaction and scarring from footprints and mowing equipment.

In addition, drainage around buildings is important to prevent leaks and moisture intrusion into building foundations and walls.

Drainage systems can use a variety of techniques to remove unwanted water from an area, whether on a residential, commercial, or golf course site.

DECKING DESIGN Surface Drainage Systems

Surface drainage systems aim to collect excess surface water from hardscaping, planter beds,Gardens and specific turf areas where water tends to collect. Water enters a surface drainage system through catch basins and piping, which have a sump area that collects debris to prevent clogging of the piping.

Linear drainage systems are typically used to intercept rainwater and carry it away to a drainage point, They usually come as a u-shaped cross-section made from polymer concrete or plastic, with plastic or metal grating over the top. Linear drainage systems are normally fitted when the flagstones or block paving is laid. They are easy to fit into existing driveways by cutting out a gully large enough to fit the channels in.Corner units and other fittings including T-junction units are available with most makes of linear drainage systems.

                    Garden Drainage Pipe Systems


Perforated Pipe drainage systems
   pipes for waterlogged land, lawns and garden borders


Modern plastic land drain pipes (example right) are made from crush-resistant plastic with perforations, it's fairly stiff but flexible enough to be laid around slight curves. The pipes are laid into trenches dug in a "herring-bone" pattern and surrounded by gravel. On level ground, the pipes are sloped to the soakaway or drain system, on sloping land, the main drain should follow the slope. Soakaways do not work in heavy clay, so the pipes will need to be connected into the rainwater drainage system, not terminating under your neighbours fence.

                                   Bedding types

  Two typical bedding methods, one for each type of pipe, are illustrated opposite. There are numerous 'classes' of bedding for drainage, designed to suit all sorts of ground conditions, pipe types and anticipated loadings. Each class is identified by a different letter.
