Lawn Drainage system

I have clay soil. Will the drain sleeve work prevent the soil from clogging the pipe?  Or, do I need to use 3/4 stone to prevent from clogging with landscaping fabric?

Hey geeski.

 

You will need to surround the pipe with 3/4 stone to help filter and catch the water to prevent silt from getting through the sleeve. The rock will act as a holding area for the water as it is getting filtered into the pipe. The rock is also what slows down and stops the water for a french drain like this.
