Deck/French Drain

This customer wanted a normal (western cedar) deck attached to his porch. He also had a drainage problem that required a french drain, and he wanted a walkway.
This is the solution we came up with. under all the flagstone is a gravel bed with the french drain system inside. In between the flagstone is pea gravel to let the water through and the stones on each side serve as water traps to keep heavy rain from the house.
We also dug into the hillside and installed a retaining wall with drains to make the deck the size and shape he wanted.
I think it was a nice solution to a normally unusable space!
