This is what we mean by “sub-surface drainage”. This house sits on a hill and had water coming under a retaining wall in the uphill side and water flowing out of the hill on the downhill side. Extensive water issues and incorrect construction of the brick retaining wall had caused almost a complete failure.

Our solution? We installed a French drain next to the house to collect water from the upper hill and drain it to the ditch below the house. We also replaced the underground downspout drains to direct that water away from the wall. While digging to install a drain behind the brick wall, though, we found a rip rap wall behind it. We shifted our drain to be behind that rip rap wall to prevent the sub-surface water from continuing to put pressure on the wall. When the drain was finished, we reinforced the wall footer to help prevent further damage.
