We've been steadily working to correct our road / driveway issues. We'd made great progress on the road and thought we were doing good on the driveway too. Then it rained. And rained. And rained some more.
The small culvert got blocked. And the water got backed up. And the driveway was in serious danger of just washing out and down the hill where all that fill would be really wasted.
|There is not supposed to be a pond here...
|Nope, didn't find it
|Creating a ditch in the driveway
|Not supposed to be a stream here either
Took quite a while for the water level to recede enough to continue work.
|See the high water mark on the tree?
We laid a sand bed, joined the two pipes, and filled in with rock and fines.
|Partially filled; decorative rock in bucket
We used some of our large collection of decorative rock (please, no snickering) to hide the inlet and outlet pipe ends. So far so good!
