Curtain Drains

Why are curtain drains necessary?

There are some properties where water tends to pool creating wet, unusable ground. Others have problems with erosion and severe run-off during storms. Such drainage problems can be solved in a variety of ways, the most effective being a curtain drain, also called a french drain by some.  Curtain drains are trenches filled with gravel and a perforated pipe laid at the bottom. The width and depth of the trench depends upon the depth at which the water is infiltrating the ground.
