Unfortunately,it sank before docking. Here's the situation. Customer who's trying to sell their home calls up.(I've already seen a bit of work going on there regarding their siding.They have a DryVit home.) I take care of their lawn as well all the shrubs,etc.,, Anyway,they have a problem.The soil next to their home HAS to be 6" below where the DryVit starts.(The DryVit was below the soil before they had the repairs made) Well,the contractor who repaired the home moved the DryVit right above the footer,so the soil in the beds is about 4-5 inches above the bottom of the DryVit still.(They dug a trench around the home to keep the soil off.) They had the home inspected and the inspector told them the beds had to be 6" below where the DryVit starts and had to slope away from the home.(There goes the French drain idea) After the customers leave,I start to take measurements.I run a line level from 6" below the DryVit to the edge of the beds in various locations.I dug a trench in these locations until I came up level.Now picture this.The beds would vary from 8-10" below the grassline.Basically a big mote(like around a castle) would be left to stay within specs.Also,all the shrub and huge holly trees would have to come out and be re planted(8-10" inches below the grassline in the bed) Can you guys picture this?Any ideas I get from you?My only thoughts right now are to RUN the other way as fast as I can. Also,one of the beds has the drive next to it.So the bed would then be 10" below the driveway in this spot because the soil is still within 6" of the DryVit there.
