Question about Garden
What you read is totally right but iam no expert but being a truck fitter i was always fixing the site machinery and the pulling the trucks out of the mud ,but if it was laid right then you could have a problem with a clay subsoil which is holding the water up and not allowing it to drain away and the best one to ask is an irishman they know about groundwork trust me.Dig it down and see whats underneath in regards to the size of the stones used then go down into the soil to see whats their and if it clay then dont dig it all up ,just find lowest point of drive and then have a sump hole dug of say about 4 mtres down to clear the clay layer and about 5 mtres square ,then fill on the bottom with builders rubble if available so its about 50cms or so then build a funnel with old concrete blocks up to the level of the drive so water can drain down to bottom ,backfill the hole and job done now hte size of the drain hole can be different depending on the rainfall of wherever you live and weither you get what we call here in spain gota fria ,or a heavy old thunder storm in our language ,this idea will work as old patrick the tarmac man was always calling me out when a digger got stuck and some of what i saw does sort of stick in the memory ,also another trick they use here in spain is to plant a tree preferably a eucaliptus as these will stand drought and send roots well down to **** up the water .
