Here is the problem, a customer wants us to make an area of his lawn drain away from a new section of a driveway he just had done, he wants to prevent water from running onto the new concrete deck. Any suggestions on how to go about doing this? He was thinking to shave down a 10 foot area and re-slope the section to angle away from the new driveway area. I'm thinking there must be a less painful way. The whole reason for this is he doesn't want to have to hose the area off anymore when dirt goes onto it when it rains. I'm like why not just make sure the edge is lower than the concrete, but if he wants to pay for a big production, so be it. My thought is lower say a foot around the new pad. How would you guys handle this? Basically the area he is referring to is the 1st picture. That area he wants to lower. What would be a charge to do this work?
u can design very nice landscaping around that drive way, with stone around in the back for retaining the water and some nice mulch
