¿Qué Tal Lo Hice?

Hablando con mi vecino el otro día que es de Mexico y no habla inglés, yo quería decir:

I was under the impression that the ditches and canals they dug under the stones in the garden would carry the water under the garden wall directly to the street. But instead, the water collects in this holding device, and then this device shoots the water onto the sidewalk. That's why we have so many puddles to wade through. What do you suggest we do that doesn't cost an arm an a leg to fix?

Dije algo así:

Yo tenía pensado que las zanjas y los canales que cavaron debajo de las piedras en el jardín llevaría el agua por debajo del muro del jardín directamente a la calle. Pero en cambio, el agua reune en este dispositivo de retención, y luego este dispositivo dispara el agua sobre la banqueta. Por eso tenemos tantos charcos para vadear. ¿Qué sugieres que hagamos que no cueste un ojo y la mitad del otro para remediar?

Creo que mi vecino me entendió, pero no estoy completamente seguro porque solo respondió, “Tú decides y luego me dices cuánto cuesta” Por eso, quiero saber, ¿Qué tal lo hice?

There are very little mistakes but it can be perfectly understood.

Atreverse es la única forma de mejorar.
