Water stands at the back of my house when it rains for long. I was told that I needed to build a ditch or a French Drain. How can I get more information on a French Drain?

Thanks,

Chuck

Chuck, found this site (thanks to our friend JayJ), check out www.zwaterworks.com/frenchdrn.htm. I also noticed that you have several other questions posted in some of the other areas, if you'll do a search (on both the new and old BBS) you most likely will find info regarding what you're looking for (that's how I found JayJ's info). I'm not trying to be cruel here, but sometimes the "regulars" have addressed a question so many times that they/we start ignoring the questions when they come up time after time. Everybody on both boards like to assist "when" we can, but really like for people to try to find the info when it has already been addressed in the past. Anyway, so much for rambling on, I hope that the website listed above provides all the necessary info you require, if not post back up and myself or someone else will surely assist. Good luck!

Wick is being far kinder than I. Have you tried a search? While Wick was responding, I did just such a search. I got 541 hits the first try, most of which are very informative. Yea, I know. You don't have time and wnat us to do the leg work for you.

No Bob, I searched for about an hour and finally gave up and decided to post a message.
