  1. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    I put in the short (max 3') but long (22') along my house. See pictures (if you click on them it rotates them properly). Since installing, I've been getting a small amount of water in my basement during heavy rains. I'm wondering a couple things: 1) should I still a perforated drainage pipe...
