Does anyone here do or know someone in the bay area who can install a french drain in the back yard of a residential property? It's near El Cerrito and the back yard is small, but the land is flat and I need someone to see if it's feasible to install one. I'll be back next week and if the work can be done before the end of August, that would be great. I think a cut will have to be made in the sidewalk or a hole bored to allow water to drain into the street gutter, so a city permit will be necessary. I don't want to even entertain offers from contractors who hire illegals.
