After listening to he advise from several people I decided to create a Dry Well.
The basic concept of a dry well is to collect and redirect rain underground and allow it to filter its way to an area further away from buildings.
Step 1: Material
- A roll of "separator" fabric - Home despot, yard center, Lowes...
- 15 ft of 6 inch pvc
- Pvc fittings (90s..)
- 3/4 in gravel. I could have used bigger gravel but I had this on hand.
- A drill and 1/2inch bit
- A shovel.
- Enough time to dig a big hole....
- A 55 gallon barrel.
