I'm trying to work out the sequence of events for a piece of landscaping i'm DYI.
I've built a retaining wall to level out the soil between us and the neighbours who's slab is about 400mm higher. What we want to do now is scrape the soil to ultimately replace it with better growing soil (currently crap clay and backfill). Though we also want to put a french drain in to take the surface water away.
So my question is what order? If we scrape it first, then build the drain, will the drain be too deep? Or scrape, then bring in the soil, then the drain? It might be much of muchness but maybe there's something I'm not thinking of.
