This week saw the new 'linear' soakaway dug. It means that rain water from the garage roof no longer flows into the septic tank. Following detailed instructions, a trench 2 spits deep was dug (avoiding cables) and perforated land drain laid. Rubble was laid down the sides with gravel on top followed by a sheet of plastic (to ensure soil doesn't block all the perforations). After topping up with soil, Chris re-laid the turf. Result: near perfection. Not exactly creative gardening but, nevertheless a necessity. Now, all we need is rain - as we have done so for months and months!
