Drainage Problem/Solution

Posted by depeche2u none (My Page) on

I am having a drainage problem adjacent to my back patio. We had leveled our yard with sand ~ 1 year ago, and that has leveled most of the back yard, but the water collection prior the leveling has not improved. We have french drains on one side of the patio that have not been extended the length of the patio. I am attaching some pics. What are my options? My thoughts are
1) Extended the french drains.
2) Extend the patio
3) Graveling the edge of the patio

Thoughts?

Thanks,

RE: Drainage Problem/Solution

dep,

Sorry, the picture is not much help. can you get one further away or another angle. The grass area outside of the concrete shown in the pic doesn't look level. Does the ground slope toward you patio and is higher than the patio? Where is the french drain in the picture? A french drain is only good for a rain that can soak in the ground, not for heavy rain where water travels over the ground surface quickly. JMHO Aloha
