Backyard/Between house drainage
I'm looking for some "landscaping advice".....The ground between my house and my neighbour's property always seems to be soggy. There's no grass or anything. It's to be a mix of dirt, gravel and mulch on my side.
My neighbour has a concrete backyard right from fenceline to fenceline and his side is slightly higher than mine. I know for a fact that when it rains all the water will run off onto my property. From there the water drains to the end my property and into a park/marsh. The field is sloped and the storm water drain is at the bottom of the hill.
I don't plan on growing grass or anything along the side of my house because I wouldn't be able to get a lawn mower into the space. However, the ground is extremely soggy and things like weeds and moss are growing.
I'm assuming this extra moisture can't be good for the house and the random growth of weeds and moss is a bit unslightly so I was thinking of dumping some more 3/4 crush back there to help with the drainage. Would it make more sense to actually install a perforated tube / weeping tile along my fence line to help the water drain from the side the house to the back where it can run off into the park?
