What's a good way run a length of 2" PVC underground from one side of the porch to the other. I'd use it as a culvert to route a garden hose in the long term.
The cement step and walk are 4' wide. The step is 7"x16", or about 3 cubic ft, or about 450 lbs. The house was built in the early 1940s in SW Washington state. There is an irregular 1/2" gap between the step and the base of the porch suggesting it is not attached to the porch.
Rather than trench underneath the walk or step, I was thinking of rolling back the 4 ft wide step 90 degrees, digging a trench, laying the PVC, covering the PVC with sand, then rolling the step back.
Or rent a cement saw and cut off 2" of cement walk where it abuts the step and is cracked anyway, lay the hose (no PVC), lay sand, then fit a piece of PT 2x lumber ripped to fit.
What is your suggestion?
