A French drain is a trench in the ground with sloped perforated pipe and gravel, or similar filter, that helps to funnel and move water away from the foundation of your home. It can also be designed to help remedy an area in your yard that is always wet, and prone to flooding.
In the situation of many homes in our local Tidewater area, gutters are not enough. While gutters help to route water as it runs from the roof, French drains help to move water at the ground level.
