French Drain Repair
Serving Vancouver | Camas | Battle Ground | Ridgefield | Washougal
The Pacific Northwest is a uniquely beautiful part of the country. Unfortunately, taming a small corner of that beauty is no easy task. This is mostly because of the combination of clay soil and heavy rains. These two factors can wreak havoc if not managed effectively, causing flooding in and around structures, and placing pressure on retaining walls. A quick and easy solution is a french drain or weeping tile.
We at Boulder Falls Landscaping proudly offer french drain installation and repair services to homeowners and businesses in the greater Vancouver area.
What is a French Drain?
A french drain is a trench drain used to direct water away. The process of french drain installation begins by digging a channel that moves the water in a downhill direction and away from where you would prefer not to have it collecting.
The trench is filled with rocks or gravel and a pipe that is designed to allow the water to seep into the earth over a larger area. Water flows into the channel and through the drainage system to be released at a safe distance. The result is less standing water and less damage to desirable landscaping features.
Do I Need a French Drain?
If you’re constantly battling with a wet basement or crawlspace, or you always have a soggy yard, you could benefit from french drain installation.
French drain installation may also be appropriate in the following areas:
- Water collecting from the condensate line of central heating and air system

The water may be diverted anywhere you wish. Some examples include:
- The street
