Foundation Drainage Rock Finished

I've finished adding all of the foundation drainage rock around the perimeter of the basement. There's now 12"-18" of rock on top of the drain pipes. That depth of rock will allow any water that seeps down to flow freely into the pipe system. Once the rock is down, it get's covered with a layer of landscape fabric. That will help to keep any silt from getting down into the rock bed and plugging it up.

Before laying down the final layer of rock.

Landscape fabric laid up against the excavation.

Final drain rock added.

Landscape fabric folder over. Ready for backfill.
