Drainage idea for greenhouse.

6 years ago

Bought our new house last Feb. Greenhouse had recently 1 1/2" of water in it. We had two freak hardcore flooding downfalls which aren't to common the way this went down. Anyhow we live in a subdivision and have neighbors behind us, which apparently means there gutters and some the lack of flow down towards us! All fenced yards so wasn't aware of that when placing the greenhouse in it's spot. It's not a low area but perfectly flat one.
A lot of construction still going on in the neighborhood and had a idea. What if I got some large diameter PVC pipes that they are throwing away from house builds. Drilled holes in them, buried them a foot inside my greenhouse with gravel and dirt. Like a French drain system. Have them run out away from the greenhouse. Would this solve any possible water issues?
