Need some opinions here. Customer is having water pooling on the walk in front of front door. The yard slopes towards the house. Maybe 2 ft drop over a 30 or 40 ft span from street to house. Forms a sort of "bowl" where the water stands (pic 3). Sediment dried on walkway (pic4). Pictures 1 and 2 are just a more distant view. There really isnt anywhere to run a drain to move the water out of the area. I was thinking of doing a sort of French drain / dry well sort of creation. This would also involve bringing the flower bed along the walkway even with the right side of door (facing house). Bed would be 1.5 to 2 ft wide and about 12 ft wider and would hide the drain. Anyone have some other ideas?
