Gravel pit what to do?
We have an area, just off the patio that had 3 trees growing right next to the house. And it had old landscape cloth under the gravel. The worst thing is that it sloped towards the house, causing the sump pump to go on at every rain! And the dehumidifier is always running. So started to remove the gravel, using it over for some walkways. The digging is murder, HARD clay! The worst I have ever seen! The first thing we did was have the trees removed...trying to remove the clay and get it graded properly. A project started in September last year. Very large tree trunks. Husband suggested building it up, into a small hill and putting our dry well, complete with antique hand pump....any other ideas?
