Hello wonderful TFPers!
There's a "rock garden" in the corner of our yard where the pool waste accumulates when we backwash or drain water after a big rain. It's a nightmare to weed and keep tidy looking, so we recently decided to remove all the rock and plant the area with water-loving plants. But when we started to remove the rocks, we discovered that the rock layer is somewhat deep. Suddenly it occurred to us (perhaps brought on by our aching backs?) that maybe the rocks are there for a reason and we should leave them!
The question: Is this perhaps a drain field installed by the builders on purpose to absorb the pool waste water? Would we experience flooding of our yard if we planted it instead?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts ...
