The walls were put in about 8 years ago.
When it’s spring we have some nice plants there and ultimately we were going to put in a paver patio at bottom between bottom wall and back of the garage.
I sent my buddy, who helped us with the install, these latest pics (he used to work for a landscaper at the time) and he thinks there’s trapped water there still because we used pea gravel for the base layer.
As many of you recommended , we’re probably gonna have to put in a proper crushed gravel base.
These pics are from today.
The green line is the current French drain (covered in pea gravel) that's behind the wall.
Blue line is property marker
The yellow line pertains to my follow up question.
If we were to take walls down, put in a proper gravel base, put walls back up, would that be enough or should we put in more French drain where the yellow line is to move more water away?
I ask this because as you can see by the NON-marked up pic, the soil that was right up to the edge of the capstones has been washed away.
