yard has poor drainage
My yard, especially the back yard, does not drain well. There can be small puddles of standing water in a couple spots which worries me during the summer months due to mosquitoes. I also would like to fence the backyard for my dog bit I'm afraid he would make it a mud pit in no time.
How can I improve the drainage? There is a low spot to bording the right side of my property that funnels down to a drain pipe toward the front of the property.
Bordering my back property is a road, do you think the slope of the road/ditch sends most of the road rain water onto my property? Is these something I could get the county to do to fix the drainage problem?
