The grade is very gentle, and drainage is very good. We have never had water laying around.
Yes, across the road from us is farm land, which is seeded every year.

There is a sump pump in the basement, which is code for Sask. I don't think we will ever need it, because we overlook the lake. If we were to flood the surrounding area would be under 100 feet of water. We are high and dry :lol:

Most people around here have their sump pumps sitting on a shelf :lol:

No we didn't have to deal with any of that. Our lot is pretty flat, so there is no need for a drainage plan, or grading plan. ;)
