DURING the cyclone in january that devastated queensland

Posted by francine chanover almost 7 years ago

and the Lockyer valley area

we expereinced days of torrential rain. yet my driveway which once upon a time prior to the swales being placed was al;ways inaccessible , has become accessible duting these floods. 

we now have an allweather access thanks to the swales and berms we placed as shown in photos attached.

we received 140 mill of rain and did not suffer any consequence to the front of the property,

Our next major project will be swales, berms and a dam to the opposite side of the road  and onwards...
