    I"m trying to sell a house that has a drain in the back yard but all potential buyers don"t like the drain which can't be moved. It sits about 6 inches from the ground so people with kids are turned off. Didn't want to put shrubs around it to keep the water from going down. Big rocks might be an option if it doesn't make it look like an eye sore. I don't think they make fake rock covers bigger than 32x32. Need to do something but what ?

    Shrubs are not going to prevent water from getting to the drain... Why is it 6" above the ground??? Pix may be necessary, because this doesn't make any sense... :)

    I built a fence around mine in the backyard so I can't see it and the neighbors are stuck with it instead. :laugh:
