Rainy woes around town lately. One of our rental properties, Sunset Valley, is sure not handling all of this rain very well! It has been a battle with the already saturated ground to keep the water from damaging anything. It’s also just a terrible thing to have water sit at the foundation of a house.
Pro tip! Move that water AWAY!!
Luckily, we found an expert in installing drains underground that will (hopefully) fix all of the issues.
What’s Going on with the Rain?
What is really bad is that we usually do not have this kind of rain, so while it is very necessary right now, we may not realize the benefits again for a good while. I’ve heard people who have been here their whole life say that they don’t remember a time this wet in a very long time. I do not either. But we must protect the investment!
Finding a Guy
This awesome landscaper who just moved here from California had given our contractors from the Washington house his business card, and I called to see if he could help. Isn’t networking good?
To our joy he said he knew all about these types of things and has a lot of experience with them! So, he has been busy at work digging trenches and creating a large spillway (by hand) to put a drainage system in.
He has really worked incredibly hard and has made amazing progress (did I mention BY HAND) in only two days of work. He also found some issues with the gutter system and is going to address those as well. I’m sure glad he came along!
We can’t help what Mother Nature decides to do, and we can only seek out people who know how to work around it. Maybe it will stop raining long enough for him to finish soon!
