My backyard is about 300 square ft. The soil mix sand and dirt. It collects water. Could I install a french drain without electrical sum pump which inturn I would still have to run conduit out for the releive of water. I hear that I could fill the bottom of the soil with balast and the water will dissipate into the soil down below. Also in the balast I would install pvc pipe with holes driven into the dirt and cover with balast to help furter dissipate the water. Would that work without adding the sump pump, because I try not to have to dig into the exsistant cement to route the water out to the front of the house. The home is an attach home.
