A new discovery for a rookie is that carving the pool into slope at rear of yard means
I will need a french drain and the PB doesn't do that nor did we discuss addressing the slope
runoff prior to my questioning the ditch they are planning to leave for me.
1a) PB carted off a ton of dirt yet now I am looking for it to fill in the ditch after I address drain.
There seems to be plenty of free dirt on Craig's list but shouldn't they have offered to save some
of my dirt for this issue?
1b) Can I request/demand that they bring back enough dirt to backfill trench?
2) I have not done a lot of DIY and no experience in landscaping.
Can a guy like me lay a french drain on Saturday morning ?
32ft of Perforated pipe, wrap in landscape material and lay/connect/install pipe 12-18" deep, leading
away from pool to my side yard drain? Is that what it takes?
3) I read in another thread that I should water proof back of wall with sealer - is that a must?
