2018 October 23rd***Update***
What I thought would be a quick trench dig has turned into something larger. I had to create a slope from the patio to the back corner of the yard. This “Stream” will serve as a water source to the vegetation I’m planning to grow. I’m optimistic that we can find a way to use solar power to create a water current that circulates the water.
Last week we received heavy rains and it made it became clear where the water was settling in the back yard. I also have an excess of river rock to remove from the border of the pool. So to allow a set place for water to run to during rain, and also create a physical barrier so i can plant my raised garden beds,i’ve begun lining out a trench. What it will become from here, we will see!
