The contractor who built out house tried to cut corners by tying the downspouts into the foundation drains. Needless to say, every time it rained, the crawl space flooded. Luckily we had our suspicions and dug into the drains before he finished on the house. Needless to say, he spent a weekend fixing the problem.
The rain has made my paths a soupy mess, but I need to wait until the fence is up to put down the cardboard and mulch.
