Diverting water away from the basement.

Keeping water out of the basement is our top priority in 2016. One contributor to this has been the eroding soil in our side yard that has been directing water TOWARDS our foundation, beneath our deck.

After looking at our finances, we can only afford one major repair, so we’ve decided to re-grade a portion of the yard. This will also mean replacing the rotting deck. The remaining landscaping will have to wait until a later date.
