I have rural frontage to a county, hard packed dirt road. In the gulley, which mostly has rough stone in it, I would like to redirect water. Problem is my land is about 3-5 feet above the drainage ditch. I thought of digging a deep to put in a pipe which would lead into a dug out area to soak water into my soil. On my lot, I'm leaving sage in wherever I can and ultimately wanting grasses in bare spots and eventually trees. I haven't experienced monsoons but I'm expecting an occasional deluge here and there. It's not something I want to let go to waste. From images. It's lower corner of a gradual slope. The corner (left side) is lower. Camera lens warps a bit. Again, how do I get water from ditch especially at this lowest corner. Atm i have a shovel and time. It's "13 avg rain in a very dry year.
