i was wondering if anyone knows the significance of having a ditch on your land on its blueprints. this is a new construction home and i was wondering if these ditches are usually filled or what

Most of the ditches here are for flood control and the couny maintains them, usually with herbacides.
I don't know what you want it to look like but you could buy 50' rolls of 24" wide silt fence (without preattached stakes), roll it out on the ditch line and fasten it with sod staples. The fence is made of black, woven, geotextile fabric and typically has UV protection. I've seen 5 year old, fully intact, silt fence that's had continuous exposure to the elements. Material cost shouldn't be more than $300. (Spray it once a year with used motor oil for good measure :cheesygri)lb59 said:The ditch is 16" wide.
The back is about 250 to 275 fee long and the 2 sides are about 175 to 200 feet long each.
