How do I keep water from settling in a concrete planter bed against my house? I was told by a friend of mine I should dig down about 8 inches and fill it with gravel. It is a concrete foundation with no basement and I am in northern California.
Thanks. Im thinking that with the gravel, water will pool below the surface level of the floor inside. Maybe no difference. If the drain rock would be ineffective, then I would probably just plant right in the dirt.
