Default Regrade...

You will need to get some topsoil and plant more grass. I would live with it...the rains we get this time of year ussually subside after a while.

Just think, in another 10 years you will be collecting that water in a big tank in the yard to survive. Save the time for something else.

keep in mind that if you add top soil it might make the water deeper in your drive way. no one likes wet feet.
