French drain

French Drain

So we found a lot of cracks along on our cement patio and a contractor told us that we had a slight negative grade so we could regrade away from the patio or try a french drain. I still don’t know if this was the way to go.

This was a weekend project by myself.  I weigh 120 lbs so I had my work cut out.  I think it was one day of pure digging before I had the energy to reconvene.  Other sites will give you more technical advice.  I’m just showing how I did mine.
