landscaping on french drain
Just put a french drain right thru where landscaping should be. Had to do it.
I'm not too overly-concerned about asthetics, its the back of the house, its a fenced in back yard, and it was the shaded north and north/east side anyways.
Nevertheless, I need to put something over the gravel channel, or the wife will kill me.
- I was thinking about just going with landscaping rock (river rock, is it called) but that sounds expensive and sorta 80s.
- A friend suggested that after putting fill and top soil over the gravel channel (there'd be about 3 inches of soil coverage) to plant mondo grass.
I'd love to hear other ideas? I'm in the Atlanta area.
