Does anyone have any suggestions on how to take care of this problem?
I see this happen to somebody almost every time some on restructures their lawn. Obviously a barrier of some sort is needed to catch and divert water. Hedges, perrenial beds, stone mulch, stone wall, or pampas grass to mention a few.
Does the water continue to run beyond the gulley? or does it kind of level off and soak in after the drop off?
Thank You for your response
Yes it does continue to run off.
Here is another picture.
If the second picture is any indication of soil structure you have a difficult task ahead of you. Far too many stones in the bedding, tree shading... If you want to divert the water, a French drainage system.
Thanks for your reply.
I was thinking that too.
The upside of having the stoney and sandy soil is that once you decide how to slow and/or divert the water it will soak in nicely.
After the initial washout there doesn't seem to be much eroding across the grass. Perhaps a filling and levelling with good topsoil and some sod in the washout would work.
