We are just starting to set up our coop and run. No matter where we put it in our backyard water will run through the run. Our backyard slopes downward to the bank that goes down to the creek. Above our yard our other people's yards so that all rain water runs down through our yard to the creek. In addition due to the trees in our backyard grass does not grow well back there. There is one spot to put the run that wouldn't be as much of a problem because the house blocks some of the runoff...but it is right next to the deck and stairs that go down to the creek and only about 20 feet from the house. Would that be too close to the deck or to the house?
