French drain installation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Any response to these issues is gratly appreciated.

What is the standard of care for installing a 4" dia. french drain
along a 70 foot-long by 9 foot high masonry retaining wall?
Are there any gravel or crushed rock specific requirements?
What is the minimum slope required by the standard of care?
Is a 1/4" slope appropriate?

Thank you in advance.
