Let it rain…

Well, we’re just back from Mexico so I decided to start a new little drainage project last week. Seems the original owner decided to forego a perimeter drain around our main out-building. On three sides, water drains down the natural slope of the land but on the north side, the slope is above the grade of the concrete pad so when it rains big, the water table rises and spills over into our building. Luckily we don’t have anything in there of great value but it is a pain – hence the new drainage. This project is only 15 metres so didn’t take me too long – ditch, grade, pipe, cloth and fill! Hopefully this will move our excess water! Check the pics!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful project Ben and well needed. Sadly, I wasn’t able to check out the pics. How do I get to them?
    Love,
