A French drain or blind ditch is one of the most common types of yard drainage systems. This system consists of a ditch with a perforated pipe wrapped in filter fabric and buried in gravel to direct water in the most advantageous manner so that it drains from the property.
A drywell system stores water collected from the home’s downspouts or drains placed in the low spots in a yard. The water flows into an underground storage well. The water will gradually filter out of the well and end up back in the groundwater.
The tubing can often be buried to for esthetics or safety reasons, and can direct the water to areas of the yard that can easily absorb it or direct it to a drain.
