It rains a lot in Redding in Winter, and it gets very hot in Summer. So drainage and irrigation forms the structural basis for landscape planning. Our relatively flat front yard had so called “French Drains” installed when constructed 35 years ago. But you can see what happened when they pulled up a section of the old 4″ drain pipe. It was filled with roots and soil.

We’re starting out here with these valves and 1″ pipe. Our intention is to have low flow, water conscious plantings. But we want a solid plumbing infrastructure.
