We bought a new build house which has a very basic turfed garden with a slight slope running towards the house.
The garden was always bogey so went about altering. I installed sleepers ten foot from house to level up garden and extend the patio area. I ran a small Cotswold stone border around patio up to sleepers. So two sides and top.
Where the water from the main garden runs towards the house and where the water runs off the patio into the stones, I am getting about 50% of the stones border filling with water (left side and half of centre) and not draining away quickly looking untidy.
i will be having the patio redone towards end of year and proper draining run around patio but need to sort myself in the short term.
My thoughts were to dig up all the cotswold stones, dig further down, refill with large pebbles and then re cover with the cotswold stones, creating hopefully drainage. Or at least better than now.
Anu experts have any thoughts on this and will it be ok in short term?
