We had this problem in our front yard that every time it rained (which is frequently), we’d have a GINORMOUS puddle in front of our porch. To get inside the house, you had to traipse right on through the giant, (did I mention?) muddy puddle. There was no avoiding it. It was too big.
We wanted to do something about it, but we didn’t want to spend a ton-o-cash.
Then I found this picture on Pinterest (are you on Pinterest yet? it’s aweseome):
And I thought, “One of the trees on base was stuck by lightning!”
And a tree struck by lighting in close proximity to the fuel gudang (what’s the English word??? um, storage area?) is bad…wood, sparks, fuel. Bad. So, the tree was cut down, leaving a ton of stumps lying around. Perfect for my little front porch puddle problem!
I realize that in comparison to the original Pinterest version, our little stump puddle-problem solver seems kind of weak sauce, but it works and it was FREE (except for the $8 shovel we had to buy)!
Hopefully it won’t just rot away…
No more puddle for us! (at least not right there…the backyard is a different problem story.)
