So my neighbor just built a bunch of planters next to our yard, he also put in piping in his yard so I assume he had standing water problems.
I don’t blame him for that, but now we have standing water problems.
What method would you recommend I use to drain it off? I’ve heard of using a “french drain” which I guess involves burying perforated PVC at an angle downward where you want the water to go. I guess if I went that way I’d rent a Ditch Witch which will dig trenches 4 inches wide up to 3 feet deep. Problem is my yard is kind of lumpy and of differing elevations, with no straight shots to any good place to drain off like my road’s gutter or the stream next to our property (it’s far from both of those). I also don’t know how deep the pipe can go before it gets ineffective at taking in water.
Anybody got ideas on how to best get rid of standing water in our yard.
