    Could you run two saw cuts down from the puddle to the end of the path, about 150 apart, break out the concrete and bed in a run of dished concrete channels.

    Thats a really good suggestion actually. Another for the list.


    Down the middle (or at least underneath) the path there is a drain - you’ll see the pipes on the wall feed into it.

    Perhaps I could put a slotted drain across the pond and connect into the drain below. It is down a bit is the only issue. I’d say he’s rather dig it out before we do that. Any view on that?

    I do think your idea has merit also. Will investigate further.

    Thanks for the replies lads.

    Spoke with builder. He cut out and relaid concrete with a greater fall. The cut isn’t pleasing to the eye but I’m happy considering.

    He let slip that he took his level from the course of bricks (which isn’t level) and didn’t use a level on the concrete itself to check the fall.
    No surprise its ****e!

    One more query - would you suggest using a concrete sealer? Happy to use it if it helps. Thanks.

    I suppose that’s my query.

    What benefit do these sealers provide?

    Under cover - prevents dusting etc. Exposed on all facets (to damp) - nowt.
