I was thinking about this yesterday. It is 150 feet from the garden to the front yard. The front yard runs down hill 200 feet to the street elevation drop of about 15 feet. It would be a lot loss work to plant a garden in the front yard it will never collect water being on a 5 degree angle. If the neighbors would not complain I would put a garden in the front yard but with all the deer and other animals it will need a fence around it. It will be less work to dig a hole in the garden and put a sump pump in the hole run a pipe to the front yard. WHAT I would really like to have is 2 dump trucks of top soil dumped in the garden so it will never flood.jal_ut wrote:My goodness, you should dig a trench around the plot and let it collect the water. Hopefully there is a low side where the water could run off?
