I have put in my new driveway. I designed my house with the garage opening to the side. I don’t care to look at vehicles parked outside the garage, or have people looking right in if it’s open. It also then raps around the Dog Agility ring. With Both being somewhat out of my livingroom in of sight.
I learned you can’t fight & win with rain water run off. It rains here a lot! So you design to directing it away as fast as possible. I have been working on leveling out the agility Ring, & had to put a culvert under the new driveway. There is a lot of water coming from above.
It going to take a lot time & fill to get this Ring level. I don’t want to be running up hill. There will be sand & then topped with a mix. There is a 15″ culvert under the drive at the back corner under the small marker tree.
This is the top of the driveway, looping around my HUGE Oak & Maple trees.
I tried fixing the ditch to the tune of $1000. It failed , while gone for 2 weeks, & a “so called” Caretaker, didn’t clear fallen branches, add in the Fall leaf drop. Major ditch work to come now. Tired of fighting the D.O.T..
