drainage in garden bed near house
I'm a total newbie to owning property and gardening. Sorry if this is a silly question.
There is brick-edged bed built about 2'-3' away from the house's foundation. The level of soil on the house side is slightly lower than on the outside of the bed.
Here's a pic:
I'm worried that rain and moisture gets trapped in the bed near the foundation rather than draining away from the house. There's a sump pump in the basement, so water has been a problem for past owners. Is this a real problem or am I being paranoid?
Should I remove the brick edging? If so, how would I go about removing the mortared brick? I would ultimately like to get rid of the grass and plant more edibles, though I know its a long ways away.
Thanks to anyone and everyone with advice!
