Island Bed.

images/island_20031117the island bed has become a true island. for reference, there are two layers of stone around the bed. so we have 6" - 8" of standing water in the backyard.

lest anyone worry, our house is pier and beam (gives us an additional 2 - 3 feet of clearance) and the backyard does slope off; water is not near the house.

It's kinda like a reverse pond! I've always wanted one. ...Lucky! :-)

Glad nothing but outside things got wet.

Damn, you win.

I'm always whining about how wet my yard is. I have two or three inches of 'squish' for 8 months or so of the year, but only in spring thaw do I get water in the volume you are showing here, and then it is all moving in a steady stream *off* my property.

Wow. Do you have a canoe? Looks like you could use one.
