What is a French drain?
un garcon que est ? Cest la vie... je na parle pa francais bien sensasational
j/k - here is a simple /basic description.
It is shallow drain usually with drain (cor.) pipe laid in a bed of rock covered with a couple inches of soil to deliver water from one area to a lower area.
Don't confuse this with a surface drain, these are usually placed in a low area where there is infrequent traffic or a high perk rate. Since they have no discharge point they will sediment quickly in heavy soils.
Place landscape fabric over it and can call it a curtain drain.
