I'm doing some garden work here before planting season. I'm wanting to do some drainage work since it seems my top soil is always washing away. Also have trouble with the lower half staying to wet and rotting out the plants. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with drainage? I have probably 12 truck loads of horse manure down there now, I'm going to haul out probably half and pile it. The rest will be spread throughout the garden, but I don't want to spread to much because I don't want my soil to get to rich.
Anyway, I don't want the drainage to take up any space, just kinda wanting to slow down the water when it rains (if it ever rains).
The tractors I have available right now is a Bolens HT23 with 54" push blade with 3-pt, rear blade and box blade. Also have a Kubota L2000 (20hp) with loader, backhoe, rear blade and box blade. I also have another loader that is only good for scooping.
I hope the pictures help, It's hard to get a pic of the slope.
