Poor Lawn Drainage


sandysea67 added on April 18, 2016 | Answered

Our newly built home has a water drainage issue along the property line (Swale). It has been corrected, but the water still pools along that line. We will be building a fence in the next month and are concerned about the posts rotting quickly. Do you have any suggestions on what we could do to help drain the water or what we can do to help prevent the posts from rotting? (pre-fence building)
