Before installing any new drainage solution you must first diagnose the current drainage problem. Sometimes it is as simple as an existing blocked drain that is causing water to backlog and flood. The most common drain solutions are:

Surface Drainage:

This typically consists of small ditches or land grading which removes the colected water off of the land surface.

Underground Drainage:

This drainage type collects excess water and will transprt it through underground piping to a particular section be it a tank or dump spot.

How to check if I need better drainage

A simple yet effective test that you can do yourself is to dig a hoe around two feet deep and 2 feet wide. Fill the hole to the top with water from either the hose or bottle. Set a timer and comeback to check every hour for you result.
