My problem is I have a shallow flower bed that is up against the house and surrounded by cement on the other three sides. I need some way to add something to a trench I have dug that will help the drainage from flowing over the cement on to the patio. I have large and small river rocks and some landscaping material will that be enough? Is there something else I can add to catch the water?
