New home purchase: Sloped backyard
Hi, we are considering buying our first home and found one that has a sloped backyard. It is neither towards or away from the home, but from one side to another.
The backyard is about 70 feet wide and 45 feet long. The grade is ~ 1/20 (3.5 feet drop over 70 feet width). There is a storm drain about 70ft away from the rear of the home. This also has a walk-out basement at the end which is lower.
1. What are the potential issues with such a yard. I am thinking about issues with kids playing with a ball/soccer etc, mowing .. any others?
2. Is there a way to fix this issue. I am thinking of issues like permits, issues with neighbors (water has to go somewhere). What would it cost?
3. Would you personally buy such a home?
