Hey all. We organic garden, and just built a house "in town". We ARE downhill from a wheat field, so I suppose it isn't a TRUE organic garden, but we try the best we can. Anyways, JUST above the garden we got a new neighbor this fall. Their backyard will run right into our garden, which is only a few feet away.
I tried letting him know that we organic garden, and would love a headsup before he uses chemicals this spring so we can get drainage in. But he said he doesn't use any...I said even fertilizer counts, and he said "oh that stuff won't hurt you" ugh.
So, I need to get some drainage in asap, but can't work with the ground (frozen solid) until early march at the earliest. What do you recommend? It's a pretty steep bank between our yards, so I think we'll be ok with something more shallow to catch most of the surface run-off. It needs to be something that can be LONG and won't clog (sticky mud) because it runs the whole 100 feet of the back of our property.
Any ideas? And what else can i do?!
