Need more information than that. There are hundreds of types of drain and the ready made ones, which are cheap as chips, come with grids which just clip into place on the top. Please see our project on brick and block paving and you will see a drive drain at the bottom. This is used essentially for drainage accross a driveway usually if the driveway is sloping towards the property of garage. The water can then be directed to a surface water manhole or soakaway. See also our project on French Drains and Soakaways.
