hey guys im in need of advice or confirmation on my plan. there is an investment property that recieved a large addition. when the foundation guys graded to intall the foundation they pusheds all the dirt to the back of the yard so now all the water flows right to the foundation because the grade is the opposite of what it should be. so i am called upon to put the grade within code and install a drainage solution. my plan is to regrade with a dingo seeing as the only acess to the yard is under a carport with support posts every 5 feet! so i will use the dingo to take the dirt that was laid at the back of the yard and in essence reverse its location to around the foundation so the water flows away from the foundation. once the grade is in order i will use a mini excavator to trench for a french drain on both sides of the house but i think even that will be a pain in the ass to manuver. my goal is to get the slope to divert water away from the house and the french drain is for extra insurance. stupid people! the grade should have been adressed before building a 200k addition carport and driveway!!!!
