Hello,

 

I have a circular area of concrete at the end of my current lawn area which I wish to turn into lawn aswell. The area is 6m by 6m and has a storm drain smack bang in the middle of it. I have tested the drainage of the bare concrete with the hose and generally the water ran straight to the drain. There were a couple of areas where a very shallow puddle gathered. I can comfortably get at least 10cm of topsoil on top of the concrete before I seed it but my main question really is will the concrete be better broken up? If I break it up, the water will drain through it but where to? Am I just better to leave it so the water will find its way to the drain? Apologies for all the questions within this post, but as you can probably tell, I'm CONFUSED!!

 

Any help will be apprecited.

 

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
