A portion of the driveway slopes toward a narrow grass strip that
abuts the house. Is there some sort of edging that can be inserted in
the grass where the grass meets the driveway to channel the water
away? If so, is it necessary to caulk the bottom?
Thanx, Jack (Please x-post to balt.general)
You don't give enough info here. Is this a sudden problem? Is the water
gettign into your basement or foundation?
One option, short of jacking up the basement would be to dig up a the grassy
area and lay some perf. drain tile along the area, sloped to drain to the
street or other area away from the house. Or, if the grassy area is wide
enough to support it, add additional fill dirt to grade the area the best
way to get it to flow away from the house.
