The lower farm was constantly flooded after heavy rains. The rain collected on the roof of the house and around the patio area and subsequently drained into the farm. Perimeter drainage solved the problem.

The perimeter drain follows the wall next to the house and then the wall on the south side of the farm. The drain continues along the natural curve of the banana tree line and then next to the bamboo stand on the north side of the farm.

Using roof tiles found around the farm a drain was made between a couple of boulders. The drain leads from the farm into the downward sloping jungle and eventually to the coast a few hundred meters away.
