this entire area was all gravel but was needing improvement. drain was sticking up over the gravel. wanted a nicer finish. put cement squares to create a patio effect. they cut the drain
pipe so it was lower than the squares and then put squares over it thinking it would still drain. it didn't in a hard rain. we took off 2 squares to uncover drain grating. now we want to figure out how to finish the job. i thought maybe a drain cover/grate the size of the opening would do the job. thought it might have to be custom made. other thoughts much appreciated.???? opening measures 13" x 24" and is about 1 - 3/4" high. thanks.

everyone has been helpful. very grateful. weighing our options.
I know I planted this vine but I be darned if I can remember, or figure out, what it is. I love it because it is slow growing and even though I planted it in the spring it didn't start
blooming until about a month ago. The long lasting flowers have held up well even though we have had several nights of freezing temps. I like it when I can find something that is pretty this time of year when everything else is dying.
so i started to try to repair the rubber thingy at the bottom of my electric garage doors. who knew how complicated it would get?? ultimately the buck stopped when we got to the tension
wire that started to look a little dangerous. (also, then i noticed the warning that in fact it is dangerous to mess with it, so...) now we have to find someone to repair it.
any ideas. we're up in rhinebeck ny 12572
or is there a way for me to repair it without causing damage?

at this point i have called a professional to take care of this. we couldn't figure out how
to install the replacement seal and we started taking this and that screw out and before we knew it, well, let's put it this way, it was time to get help before anyone had to be hospitalized. the spring situation came into play...
so, we seem to be resolved at this point because someone is coming tomorrow to take care of it
