Re: Looking for suggestions

Neighbors up the street had that problem, with water seeping into the basement. They put in a mini drain field to a dry well in the front yard and bermed up gravel against the front foundation. She planted some rhododendrons there & they are doing well. If she doesn't want to do all that, how about a raised bed with rhodies or azaleas? Are camelias hardy for you? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Lynda Young" <lyoung@grindertaber.com>

I believe it is just very slow draining, staying damp for long periods. Not
ideal conditions around the foundation of a structure, I'm thinking.

Also, I guess I was wanting to ask how much water does it hold? Is it
just slow draining or does it actually collect standing water at times?
