The system works by allowing a large collection area, or basin, for the water. The water then slowly drains out through the outlet at the bottom of the structure. Sometimes concrete blocks and other structures act as a deterrent to slow the water flow and collect extra debris.
You can dig drainage channels through the low areas of your garden to the pond’s edge to provide a route for excess water, and dig a pond at least 2 feet deep so that water can flow down into it.You can spread excavated soil on your garden beds to raise their level and improve drainage for plants.
