Garden help for sump pump drainage
My sump pump has been discharging water very often this summer and its starting to cause issues. Right now, it drains into my landscaped area which doesn't have many plants but is filled with mulch. Raised about 8 inches from the lawn with flat rocks surrounding.
The water is seeping out from under the rocks and causing the lawn there to be very muddy. I can't recall it happening before in the years I have lived here (Cherry Hill).
Can you please offer suggestions on plants I can place there to absorb the moisture or perhaps putting rocks there? It looks like a mess. :-( Or if you can suggest landscape companies which specialize in drainage solutions.
On a side note, is anyone's sump pump working a lot these days even though we haven't had rain in a week?
Thanks - I sincerely appreciate any advice.
