On this particular project, the soil beneath was very impermeable. Even naturally, not just from construction compaction 25 years ago. So I made a special soil mix that was not as sandy as a golf green mix, and made the lawn convex, rather than flat.

With small lawns, sometimes concave centers work with a catch basin. But I went convex this time so heavy rain water will head to the French drains along the sides.
