New path around house pooling water help!

Postby dennew55 » Sun Jan 03, 2021 1:12 pm

Hi all

Decided to relay concrete path around house as it was all cracked /old / damaged. At first I thought it was all great but since we have experienced heavy rain I’ve realised it’s now pooling heavily outside my front door. I’m a very novice DIYer but to me it looks like the concrete is not level correctly I.e too high. Any advice ? I was thinking of using a angle grinder to make some sort of channel? Ideally don’t want to rip it all up . The pictures don’t do it justice as the pooling at the front door isn’t too bad as I’ve just swept a lot away

Hi dennew55
