If you can line the whole trench with fabric, then cover it over, then that is the way to go.

If you can keep your trench as covered as possible, then it will extend the life of the drain by keeping as much silt and debris out of it.

I got you now. My concern is silt and debris sitting on top of the fabric and blocking it that way. Is that a concern, or, how is that alleviated?

Got that... So, as long as one takes care of their yard, they shouldn't have to worry about that junk falling through the rocks.

In the case of this job I did, I just did a light layer of mulch over the top in the landscape bed and rock in the driveway.

Talked to the HO just the other day and they still haven't had any water in their basement. I think they had a tiny trickle earlier this spring when we had 7" of rain in a week and that was it.
