Dry Wells - Dry Wells or soak wells are buried tanks made of porous materials, plastic or concrete that collect water from drains and stormwater pipes on the property and holds it until it slowly seeps out through the porous walls of the tank and back into the ground, dispersing it. This system is the perfect solution for properties that flood regularly or have drainage issues during downpours.
These drain systems are some of the most commonly used in household stormwater management and can make a large impact on how your yard handles large amounts of water.
Surface Drains - Surface Drains, also known as channel drains, are drains that are inset into the pavement, or soft areas around impenetrable surfaces such as concrete and pavement that are prone to pooling water. These drains are made up of an enclosed channel, which is often made of plastic, with some form of plastic or metal grating across the top to prevent injury and clogging of the drains from debris and leaf litter. Like French drains these drains are primarily designed to gather and redirect water to locations where it can be easily be dispersed. Channel Drains can also be connected to existing stormwater drain infrastructure, allowing it to drain into the public stormwater system.
French Drains - French drains are trenches dug in the problem areas of the yard or throughout the entirety of the yard that has a perforated pipe or a sock drain laid in the centre. This trench is filled with gravel and topped sometimes topped with soil to camouflage it from view. When it rains or floods the water filters through the gravel in the trench and into the pipe, where it is redirected away from the houses, low areas and areas prone to flooding.
Garden drainage is a staple of flooding control, so it is the first place to look when you need to prevent flooding during storm season. There are multiple types of drains that can be useful when it comes to diverting excess water, including French drains, surface drainage, and dry wells.
