Help! Gazebo set in front of pier --hill drainage questions PICS
Hi all. I need some help and really appreciate any info. I have very good pictures on photobucket and via email but can't get them to upload. I'll try again tonight.
Basically, we have a one acre runoff pond that was dugout to 20 ft. at end of pier. We just leveled a spot and put a gazebo at the entrance/dry end of the pier but now need to address the sloping hill that leads to the "sunken" type patio with gazebo. I have not consructed the patio yet and could even go with a wood floor which may or may not present a whole new set of problems.
My neighbor has a large loader and moved the gazebo into place and leveled with lazer level. I thought a french drain with pipe draining into pond would be best but he wants to use a "swell" and change the level of ground surrounding gazebo and slope toward the water.
Do you guys have any thoughts or suggestions?
Anybody have a great hint on uploading these dang pics??
Thanks so much!
