I've got a soggy sideyard, which is more or less a textbook example of where you would build a french drain.
My issue is this: thanks to the way the yard / house / street / etc are all arranged, getting a sufficient amount of 1/4" rock into the back would be a heck of a project.
So, a thought occurs: there's that rubber mulch stuff, which is made of rubber blobs of about the right size, costs about the same, and it's light enough that I could get all I need into the back in an afternoon by myself.
Has anyone ever tried using rubber mulch instead of rocks? Did it work? Should I just suck it up and go with rock?
