Water Drainage Issue
This area was filled with gravel and landscape rocks by previous owner and it looks like it has sunk down a bit over time. I dug up the area and am trying to figure out what to do next about the drainage issue.
I will definately add a gutter extender and point it towards the driveway but that wont do anything about the surface water that drains into the area from the backyard. Should I add soil to this area and slope it away from house? Should I add small retaining wall border against paver so water from backyard bounces off it? Do I need to hire an expert?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
