  2. Line the trench with landscape fabric, leaving some
    excess on the sides.
  3. Insert the end of the sump pump line into a 4” perforated PVC drainage.
  4. Lay  4″ perforated drainage pipe along the entire length
    of the trench. The holes in the drainage pipe must be pointing down towards the gravel in order to collect water.
  5. Fill the trench with gravel on top of the installed drainage pipe. The trench should be completely filled leaving 1″ on
    top for sod. Connect a water pop up to the pipe, this
    should be above ground to disperse water. When com- pleted, add grass seed or sod on top of the gravel.

  2. Attach a water pop up to the tank. This tank will fill and disperse water a little at a time and should help eliminate the standing water problem.
  3. Cover with dirt and grass seed or sod.
