I am having something of a drainage issue. My pool deck drain creates quite a flood some times and as that flood washes down the side of my house the soil is becoming quite eroded. I'm always having to shovel up dirt deposited from these Spring storms.
So I've attached a pic that should give an idea of what I'm dealing with. Its not necessarily a big deal I'm just not sure of a couple of things.
Would it be best to first put down weed block before adding aggregate, cause what I'm thinking is just dump a bunch of decomposed granite and top that with some maybe large river rocks. Does that make sense?
Its really shady on that side of the house further up from the wash where the pool drain empties. The drain is just a PVC pipe that just ends on the side of the house. Because its so shady nothing much can grow there so I was thinking a couple of inches of decomposed granite should hold everything together nicely. Yes?
