French Drains can be installed by themselves, or as part of a Drainage System that uses other French Drains, Surface Drains, or other Drain combinations.  Typically a French Drain is used to protect a broad area that has a lot of standing water.  A French Drain might run along side a homes foundation, or beside a driveway, or on any Drainage Project where Sub-Surface water is the primary problem.  If water is running toward your home under ground ( through sandy soil), A French Drain is the only Solution  for draining away water flowing under ground.


If you live in Oklahoma City and need a French Drain installed in your yard, or along your driveway, or near your foundation, give CMG a call.  If you live in Edmond or Norman and need a Surface Drain installed in the concrete in your sidewalk or driveway, we can help.  If you live in Mustang or Yukon and would like to protect your trees or flower beds from standing water with a French Drain, CMG specializes in just that!

If you live in Central Oklahoma and are considering a new lawn sprinkler system, CMG can do the job! We have been installing Lawn Sprinkler Systems since 1993. During that time we have installed Sprinkler Systems all over the state and even in Texas. We take great pride in the work we have done so far and are looking forward to doing work for you!

For folks that already have a sprinkler systems, we specialize inExpert Sprinkler Repair. If your sprinkler system needs a major overhaul or just a minor adjustment, CMG Sprinklers and Drains is ready to help!

If you are considering a New Sprinkler System or already have an Irrigation System, you should consider a RAIN/FREEZE SENSOR. It automatically turns off your sprinkler system when you are away or are unable to turn off the sprinkler system. If at any time it is raining or snowing and nobody remembered to turn off the sprinkler system, the Rain/Freeze Sensor will do the job. If you are gone on vacation the Rain/Freeze Sensor will turn the sprinkler system back on again when it is dry enough to water again. Pretty Cool! Many times, businesses leave their Sprinkler Systems turned on. I have many times repaired sprinkler systems that were allowed to run during snow storms.

Spring is just around the corner. If you have drainage problems after thunder storms CMG can help. If your sidewalk turns into a moat after a storm or if you back yard looks like a pond and water is left standing, give CMG a call. We design complete drainage systems which may utilize, French Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, Basement Drains, Trench Drains, Basin Drains, or Sump Pumps depending on your needs. CMG can help you protect and maintain your property.

My name is Blane Callen. I have owned and operated CMG Sprinklers and Drains since 1993.  I take great pride in my work.  The Letters “CMG” stand for the first letter of the first name of each of my children.  ( Chance, Melissa, Garrett )  = CMG

I have amassed a great deal of experience designing and installing sprinkler systems repairing sprinkler systems, and designing and installing drainage systems.  Like all things in life, I have made mistakes, but I have learned from them.  As a result I get calls from time to time from other sprinkler and drainage companies that have run into a problem that they can’t handle.  I am always glad to help.

I usually don’t take money up front for Sprinkler Installation, Sprinkler Repair, or Drain Installation.  I prefer that the customer pay me when the job is complete and they are happy with the work.  In a few cases on very large jobs I request a draw or outlay for parts.  The parts are delivered from my supplier to the address where the job is being done and equal the amount of the draw.  The parts stay on the premises until they are installed.

Please leave a comment or feedback in an email about our website.
