Hi, Does the soil in Apple Valley MN lend itself to a dry well. I have an area in front of my home, about 30ft x 10ft. I want to enclose with a 30ft long, 6 inch high retaining wall to keep the garden in. Under this 30ft wall, I plan to put a French drain that will collect the runoff water and direct it to a (1 or more) drywell, about 12 to 15 inch dia. By 48 inch deep. Thanks. Mike
