.... we need to deflood (don't think this is a word) our yard first. Then put in some extra drainage to divert the run off from the neighbours yard. Then I'll get to the lavender.

The green grass you can see in the far corner has actually lifted. Oh and the tennis court too.
Five submersible pumps and thousands of dollars later the water is gone, for now. They predict the worst is yet to come. Great!
