My neighbor had some drainage issues that were resolved by digging a trench and filling it with stones. To me it was a thing a beauty and a solution to my problem of dirty basement windows on the side of the house where nothing will grow. Well moss grows there, some weeds, the occasional piece of grass, and mud. Mud does well there. It then splashes up on the basement windows. This is not a pretty sight when sitting in the man cave downstairs.
Soooo, the landscape company truck arrived yet again and the wheelbarrow got dragged out again. It's supposed to look like a dry river bed. What do you think?
Okay, try to picture it without the green hose and the downspout. Like this?
|Don't let that green color fool you. It's mostly moss.|
Now does it look like a dry river bed? Am I the only one who sees it?
- Don't tell the driver to dump the load in the middle of the driveway blocking the garage doors.
- Don't overfill the wheelbarrow.
- Don't get annoyed with the neighbors when they start saying things like, "What are you trying to do, kill yourself?" or "Let me give you the name of my landscaper."
- Do be prepared to back up your claim that it looks like a dry riverbed, preferably with photos of actual riverbeds.
