Water Solutions

Been super busy working on the water issues over at 40 M.  The good news is that our pipes are all good!  No leaks outside or inside.  The bad news is we have to figure out a way to get the water away from settling into the sand and running into our house.  French drain here we come!  Found a product at Home Depot that is basically french drains for dummies!  I think we will go with that.  Today I dug ditches so that we can move the water that will filter through our french drain to the lowest part of our yard.  We have also realized that we will probable want to install a dry river bed to diffuse the water that will run off from the driveway. I like how this river bed looks so natural.

Finally there is a low area on the water side of the house that we need to revamp.  This application would be perfect for that area.

I love this idea.  More digging is in my future.  It will all be worth it in the end.
