Every time it rains heavily, our front yard gets flooded. No issues in the basement but we do want to do some sort of landscaping work to stop the flooding. By the way, we have lived in our house since 2000 but I don't remember if it was flooded like this from the beginning or started later. Not sure if it's relevant but right underneath the flooded area shown in the photo we have our main sewage pipe that had to be snaked and cleaned from roots every few years since we moved into the house but not lately. I am thinking that the roots are from the big maple in the photo but not sure. So... is there some sort of minimal work that needs to be done to stop the flooding? Thx!
