|The lower step was covered with water, where the basketball is floating is the lower patio - the water is anywhere from |
6 - 12 inches deep there
|Garage door handle is 4 inches above the pavement|
|the water is racing over the patio, as well as pouring through the pipe under the patio.|
the result is washed out gardens, and a magnolia with roots being exposed more and more.
Of course, if all the works, and the culverts actually take care of the majority of the water in the way they should, I am not certain how I shall handle it. In our house, if a storm comes - day or night either my husband, or I, are out in the driveway getting soaked to the skin as we clear detritus from the drain. How odd it will be to be able to just sit and look out the window at the rain...
