We chose a lot on a cul-de-sac due to the size of the back yard and the view.WE were never told that our acre of lnad was a drainage basin.
WE basically built on a swamp. Water does not drain for a week so we cannot put a patio, play yard, trees or pool in our backyard. The super we worked with knew of our plans for a pool and never said a word!!!!! We have a $9000 wooden deck and I am sure it will be ruined in no time due to the water that sits in our backyard for days (sometimes an entire week) at a time.
We cannot let our kids back there to play due to mosquitos.
We cannot landscape.We were lied to and we are furious!
