Given our hillside location, we’re concerned that in a heavy rain water might pour down the slope until it ended up inside our house. A few weeks ago, I raised this issue with Kevin. He said Francisc had some drainage planned, but I asked them to beef it up.
The trench digging and gravel and pipe work has been going on over the last few days. These trenches are designed to carry the water around to the sides of the house.
It looks like they are covering the gravel with a landscape fabric of some type.
On top of the gravel and fabric, I think they’re going to place the topsoil.
Seeing all this in place makes me a lot less concerned about a flood.
