The Most Common Drainage Systems

On average, most homeowners have some type of drainage system in their yard. Though there are many drainage systems to choose from, we find that there are three in particular that are the most commonly used by homeowners; the French drain, the channel drain, and swale systems.

The French drain is the most common out of the three. As a subsurface drainage system, it can be effective in spreading and diverting pooling problems. It consists of a perforated pipe using a fabric layer as a filter, placed in a trench, and surrounded by loose material like gravel. With this setup, the pipe can lead a storm drain away from the property, allowing for more effective runoff diversion.

A channel drain is made from stainless steel and is designed with a very narrow groove, effective for lining walkways or following existing lines of other landscape features. Many customers choose this option when they need to divert water away from small pockets between their property and the street's curb.

The swale system consists of ditches designed to divert water flow and direct runoff as needed. You'll see this type of system more prominently used with yards that have a fast-moving sloped runoff. Usually lined with gravel, a swale ditch allows the water to dissipate into the soil slowly. The more popular of the three systems, swale systems are designed to look more natural on your property and provide a visually pleasing quality to practical drainage solutions.
