Anyone have any sensible and not hugely expensive way of dealing with flooding? Not hugely deep but it does spread out a bit!
From someone who remembers Guildford- when the river flooded the lower part of the town 50 or so years ago-
there is nothing you can do-it is just one of those things-unless you want to move.
I was thinking more of ways to drain it a bit without using a trug!
I'm going to investigate using a syphon hose as the drain should be lower but it is 30 feet away. Syphons work on gravity and can tolerate a bit of a lift in the middle as long as the end is lower so I might be onto a winner...
No good asking me. I can't tell the pond from the lawn.
If it's not in your home and out buildings think yourself lucky and wait for the natural order of things to do the job -eventually. PATIENCE
Oh I know that, it is more that the damned dog insists on running through it like a buffoon and that takes her across the flowerbeds!
And most of us have daft dogs as well, and towells
I remeber high tides as a child by the sea before flood barriers were put in place. Water came up through the drains and there was no stopping it. It didn't matter how many sand bags you had at the front door. Water rose from the cellars of our homes and we had to sit on a step waiting for the tide to recede before the next one came. I'm only talking 30 yrs ago.
Keep the dog on a lead.
I'm not going to keep the dog on the lead in the garden. Thankfully it is down the bottom of the garden and more of a pain in the arse than an actual problem!
Sorted then, once the water recedes the pain will go away
