Lovely Drainage Solution
Updated: Sep 20, 2019
Water was draining from driveway into basement. Soil was added to regrade away from the house and a drainage channel lined with gravel was installed along the driveway, with a buried pipe running all the way to the rear of the backyard following the downward slop of the yard. This "surface solution" is much cheaper and much preferred to French drains at the base of the foundation, in my opinion. Get the water away before it can soak into the ground!
