Thanks for that clarification.

I recently planted some trees on individual mounds on a light slope and I formed low flanks off the sides of each mound. They don't touch, so it's not a ridge. The flanks/berms are connected to the uphill side of each mound and the ends boomerang slightly uphill. The ends of the flanks/berms are lower than the mounds so that water will drain to either side before it reaches the tree's crown.

I'm just looking for ways to concentrate rainfall so that the root zones will be leached of salts this winter (I'm in Southern California).
