Bottom Line

The bottom line is that the grading in my backyard is messed up.  (was messed up?)   As a result of the grading problems and the standing water, the sunken living room flooded during a major winter rain storm.

The Solution

Fix the grading.  Isn't that simple?  Well, no, not that simple.  You see, as long as I'm having the yard torn up for regrading, I figured I should have a patio put in.  And as long as they were there, wouldn't it be nice to have fresh plant beds put along the back of the house?  And given that I'm having all this work done, doesn't it make sense to finally terrace the back yard--something I've wanted to do for years?  So, anyway, this project has grown a bit.
