Learn how this drainage system can stand alone or be combined with other solutions to reduce puddling, erosion and excess stormwater issues.

Do you have persistent yard drainage problems, a soggy lawn, water pooling along walkways and patios or downpours eroding soil and mulch along planting beds? It’s high time to consider an effective drainage solution, in particular our versatile River Jack Channel Drain that solves a number of issues. In this blog post, we’ll explore what this type of drainage system is, its best uses and why this solution is so beneficial. Read on to discover how BG Outdoor Services’ River Jack Channel Drain works and how it can solve your own yard drainage problems.


How Does a River Jack Channel Drain Work?

As its name suggests, this type of drain features a decorative river rock channel that stretches along portions of your landscape that require drainage. It can border planting beds or landscaping areas or cut across your lawn. This linear drain can extend as long as you need it to across your property. Depending on your property’s specific drainage issues, it stands alone or can be combined with other solutions to form solve complex requirements.

The River Jack Channel Drain can function perfectly well on its own to help distribute water away from an area with poor drainage. But it can also be combined with the modern EZ-Flow® French Drain solution to help move water further away from highly saturated areas. For example, the same trench used for the decorative river rock can also feature an EZ-Flow® drain pipe below the River Jack Channel Drain. This EZ-Flow® system can connect to stormwater downspout solutions, helping to pipe water away from the foundation below the decorative river rock above helping drain water pooling in the yard.

When it comes to selection of a long-lasting drainage system that is both highly effective and looks good, the River Jack Channel Drain is an excellent choice. Not only is it easy to maintain and highly effective at removing water over a large surface area, but it can also be customized for volume requirements (how much water it’s capable of handling) and can be combined with other solutions, such as drain pipes to further reduce pooling, erosion and other problems.
