Exterior Drainage Systems

Smith Brothers Tree & Landscaping has many years of experience helping the people of Chicago's western suburbs design and implement their landscape ideas.

Curb appeal is very important if you are looking to sell your home, but having a well-designed and maintained landscape is important for other reasons. A well-designed landscape maximizes the usability of your green space to gain the right balance of visual appeal and operational area. A properly performed landscape project will also clearly show where your property ends and where your neighbor’s begins. It can also make your property more serene as plants and trees absorb ambient noise.

French Drains

A French drain (also known as weeping tile, blind drain, rubble drain, rock drain, drain tile, perimeter drain, land drain, French ditch, sub-surface drain, or sub-soil drain) is a trench filled with gravel or rock or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. A French drain can have perforated hollow pipes along the bottom to quickly vent water that seeps down through the upper gravel or rock.

French drains are primarily used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging building foundations. French drains are also used behind retaining walls to relieve ground water pressure.

The BEST feature about French drains is they do NOT need electricity or power of any kind to function. If the power goes out in your area the French drain will still FUNCTION CORRECTLY!
