Driveway Drainage with French drains / Trench drains

Have you experienced a flood garage or water seeping into your house? Chances are you have a poorly designed driveway.

Ideally your driveway should be downward sloping away from your house carrying any excess water away from your house (not towards it). This will prevent flooding in your garage or house.

If water is flooding your driveway or house frequently, consider installing driveway drain between your garage and your driveway to prevent your garage from flooding.

 

You can consider installing a french drain or trench drain to solve your problems. 

What is a French drain? 

Invented by the French and popular in France back in the 1800s, a French drain (also known as weeping tile. blind drain, rubble drain, rock drain, drain tile, perimeter drain, land drain, French ditch, sub-surface drain, sub-soil drain or agricultural drain) is a trench filled with rock or gravel or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. A French drain can have perforated hollow pipes along the bottom to quickly vent water that seeps down through the upper gravel or rock.

Depending on the severity of the flooding you have in your driveway, speak to a landscaping expert to advise you on the types of drains you should install to prevent further flooding.

To maintain the aesthetics of your driveway when you install a french drain or trench drain, consider our Jonite range of products where our steel reinforced drain covers (gratings for french drains or trench drains) can blend into the existing interior or exterior landscaping design of your driveway, garage and home.

The Jonite Story

Jonite Stone Reinforced Gratings

The majesty of natural stone is perhaps best expressed by the magnificence of the stone castles of England. Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, we wondered if the material could be used to make functional and beautiful grates.

Yet, the sheer cost of using thick slabs of natural stone proved to be commercially unviable. Natural stone, although having aesthetic appeal, was too weak and unreliable to satisfy safety standards and requirements. A new solution had to be found.

In 1994, Jonite pioneered the world’s first reinforced decorative stone grating. Incorporating the beauty of stone with uncompromising load bearing strength, the marriage of aesthetics and performance remained unchallenged in the industry.

Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, Jonite was developed through years of extensive research and development, leading edge technology and driven by a team of dedicated and passionate personnel.

With over 20 years of being a manufacturer of architectural and decorative stone grates, Jonite is your partner in hardscape design. At Jonite, we recognise the transformational potential of space. With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possibilities we offer in texture and colour, our engaging designs complement the vision of international architects and designers.
