block paved driveway

Postby delpx » Thu Oct 02, 2008 1:48 pm

Our block paved driveway inclines towards our garage causing it to flood each time we have sudden heavy downpours - last night was especially bad! Could I dig a channel on one side of the drive alongside a wall to help with drainage? Any suggestions/ideas/advice will be gratefully received many thanks. PS the wall is 2ft high and not in great shape!
