Standing water can be harmful to your foundation and landscaping, but what is the difference between a Surface and a French drain?
A French drain is sub-surface with a perforated pipe surrounded by gravel. As water hits the gravel it travels to the pipe which redirects water away from an area.
Surface drains are catch basins that capture the water at low points in the yard and divert that water using a solid pipe.
While French drains can be very effective it is much more common to need a surface drain. Using a perforated pipe with surface drain or gutter down spout can create problems as that pipe with only inject the water back into the soil.

Tip: When a Loose Screw Just Won't Catch
Do you have sagging hinges or maybe when rebuilding wood furniture you discover the existing holes are stretched and the screw no longer catches? Here is a super simple fix:
Slide a few toothpicks (or matchsticks) into the hole before the screw. The screw will then be able to grip on to the soft wood and create a snug and secure fit.
