The dirt around ege is even with patio. Water pools on flat patio. What is the best drainage option for around the edges?
I saw a 3"x10' black flexible drain pipe with 4 slits spaced all along 10' surface, has circular ribbing and each piece connects. If I dug a slopping ditch to each side of patio and put drain pipe in it would that fix my problem? Would I put black landscape fabric under it or just small rocks? This is a DIY project. Is there a better solution? Cannot replace cement.
