A Grassroots Solution

While walking home from church, I noticed that some of the slots for the drainage near our garage were clogged with soil. I immediately knew how it happened. The house we’re renting has a garage with a gravel bed with bare soil underneath. After years of use plus the annual rains, the gravel has almost washed completely away, exposing the soil. So when it rains, the soil would erode and find its way out of the house to the drainage which it has clogged to a degree. I figure that to solve this permanently, we would have to cement the whole garage or a cheaper alternative is to put grass to minimize soil erosion. I don’t mind cutting grass, I could get a cutter at toro mowers for that job.
