French Drain Help

Jason Moss
11 days ago

I have a house that I am building with a basement, the house overhangs the basement walls by a good 10 feet on all sides. I have read in several forums that typically on French drains they take the drain gravel all the way to the surface. However, because my house overhangs the basement walls I don’t think this is the best approach but not sure what to do. If I do backfill with native soil, will this clog my geotextile fabric layer? Send help.
