I really need advice on controlling erosion around our concrete deck. Our pool was built on a small downgrade, which required over 200 yards of sand backfill.
What is the best method of controlling runoff? Should I use corrugated drain pipe and gravel around the perimeter? Can I just add top soil and plant grass, or will it continue to erode?
Also, I would really appreciate some advice regarding landscaping. What is the best method of landscaping a steep backfill area? We are considering large rocks, but we live in the country surrounded by water and may have a problem with snakes.
