Driveway Drainage


I am needing to install some drainage at the bottom of my driveway,it unfortunately runs back towrds the house.Iam looking at putting a horizontal drain in the V where the two pieces of concrete meet at the expansion joint.I'm just not sure what to do on the outlet side.Should I bury perforated pipe with a sock over it or some type of catch basin?

Driveway Drainage


What's the lay of the land where it's draining too,..??

Can it just be daylighted,+ pitched away,..??

I deal alot with drainage problems, and I suggest a trench drain. You would need to cut a slot/channel in the concrete, dig out the substrate and reverse slope it outwards from your home structure, pour a concrete bottom in it and placee th trench grate over the slot. It's more a commercial/industril application, but i'm seeing it requested and used more and more on residential property, especially as an expansion joint/drain.
