In our back yard, we have a concrete sidewalk along two walls of our brick garage. The garage is on a slab. The sidewalk is tilted towards the wall so water accumulates at the base of the garage walls after a heavy rain. On top of this, the lawn next to the walkway needs to be regraded. We actually don't want the walkway but were going to raise it just to solve the water issue for the time being. Someone recently suggested though, that we begin regrading now and as part of the process, bury the concrete walkway. Meaning, the lawn will come up to the garage walls. If we were to do this, the buried walkway would be about 4 inches below the new lawn's surface (where it meets the garage walls). But we're wondering: does this solve the problem of the water pooling at the base of the garage walls? Won't it still pool, just beneath the surface? Any advice would be super helpful. Thank you!!
