Completing French Drain with crushed limestone.

In the above picture no landscaping or special stone was used for the French Drain.  Initially it won’t look great, but in this case the French Drain was in an area that got a lot of sun.  The grass will spread and put out runners and eventually cover the French Drain.  This is a good thing.  It produces a “Thatch” filter on top of the drain and helps keep the drain from clogging and greatly increases the longevity of the Drainage System.  The trick is not to put dirt on top of the French Drain Gravel.  This is a big mistake and will reduce the effectiveness of the French Drain.  Just be patient and the grass will cover.  We had a customer that had success speeding up the growth process by sprinkling grass seed into the French Drain Gravel.

Since 1993 we have gained a lot of experience addressing drainage problems Drainage problems can be complicated.  The solution is not always clear to the untrained eye. Oklahoma Drainage and Sprinkler Repair has repaired or overhauled many french drains and drainage systems that were installed by, “weekend warriors, a brother-in-law, or a landscaping company that also installs drains.”  They all can install Drainage Systems, Just not very well.  We have  over 26 years of experience DiagnosingDrainage Problems.  This ensures that a Drainage System that we install won’t have Drain Pipes that are too small, or Surface Drains installed where French Drains Should be placed, or Exit Points that allow water to Stand and become stagnant.  The above examples are just three of many “Pit – Falls” that our experienced Drainage System Experts can easily avoid.
