I have a showcase yard I'm working on with the following:
• 3 pond & brook system
• raised bed garden pond w/ waterfall
• tiered bed garden w/brixk fountain
I've handled all the drainage issues on the water features but the backyard is basically a box with a slope in it. There are two low points left where water collects, at the top of the slope where the sidewalk abuts the yard at a 90 degree angle and another at the bottom of the slope. Problem is there are a giant live oak and good size crepe myrtle almost mingling roots from either side of both spots. Any solutions? Maybe I should be thinking about a design element?
