What has happened? what can be done? #355369

Asked August 22, 2016, 6:28 AM EDT

We engaged a contractor to mitigate run-off and drainage on our yard in Brandermill in 2015. In 2016, we engaged a second contractor to fix issues with a continuing problem by improving the french drains originally installed. Issue--soil was washed onto lower yard, no grass is growing. Seeking solutions to address this area: can grass grow there? do trees need to be limbed up? is another solution needed, such as installing stone to cover area? Attached is collage picture of our site taken by a landscaping company (Cartwright Landscaping).
