It’s a major excavation project. There is a lot of soil to be placed up on the ground. It requires expertise both in the products being installed and the process of installation itself. For example, without the gravel on top of the new perforated weeping tile/pipe, and soil below it, the system won’t work. The holes in the pipe need to be pointed the right way (down). A fabric barrier and gravel in the system helps keep dirt from clogging holes in the pipe. There are many different steps involved.
