We are thinking of purchasing a new home (small lots) Pricing and other interior of the home are decent.
We found out that there is a concrete swale running at the back of the property. It seems deep (1 feet) unless other shallow concrete swale I have seen. The backyard (without the Swale) is around 18 feet but the concrete swale might take in 1-2 feet. I am concerned if there would be issues. We have two small kids and I am concerned for their safety. Also, is there an impact on resale value of the property.
What do folks think concrete swale like this one?
