We have some fairly steep grades on our land and need to build roads/paths down them. I plan to use culverts at regular intervals with hugels and catchment dams but i'm wondering if i could also stretch the catchment areas out like a little swales below each area where the culverts pour the water out?
 
You’ll find me in my office. I’ll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
