Re: Drain pipe installation
If you have a french drain, this may be evident by a strip of grass about 2 feet wide by 10 to 20 feet long that dries up earlier in the summer than the rest of the lawn.
A french drain is often constructed of a trench with perforated pipe laid in it and filled with round rock, capped with a thin layer of soil. Sometimes, it's a large pit into which a drainpipe ends, and the pit is filled with round rock and capped with a thin layer of soil. The thin layer of soil tends to dry out sooner in the summer, unless of course you water your lawn regularly.
