Ultimate French Drain

Episode DYCR-213

A serious drainage problem is solved underground with a kicked up French drain that is disguised on top by a dry creek and plants! Creative, recycled seating is placed throughout the yard and a massive daybed caps off the end of the creek. Made of redwood and metal with huge outdoor cushions, this daybed provides comfortable lounging for six or more!
