Fences and flooding
Really need help, new development has added water to a surface drain in our yard. A swale was in place and recently raised, but still flooding due to neighbor's slat fence. We shortened fence from bottom, but is not enough. Neighbor okay with us replacing the fence section with a solution. Is there a fence design with a bottom panel flood gate (hinged for water to push out) to make it look like fence when no water? Currently only solution we have is to place iron fencing 2 to 2.5 ft at bottom fence. Looks horrid. Legally fighting the increased unintentional trespass of water with developers, neighbor has been reasonable. But 10 inches of rain today was near disaster for our home.
