This lake forms with each rain in varying degrees. It lies between ours and the neighbor's yard and over the years has been leaving our yard growing larger in the neighbor's. We
approached them about putting in a drainage system and were told they did that 20 years ago and weren't about to do it again. This happens up and down our street between houses and as a group we had gone before the village council with complaints. This past summer street work was done which included larger piping and grates being installed. We were told the problem was fixed.
This is the reason our sump pumps work so hard and never seem to last. Does anyone have any ideas? I am open to all suggestions except moving.

My yard had a similar pronnbblem. The prior owners submerged a plastic bucket, the large kinds
you use to ice down drinks in. Hooked a sumppump into it and ran a pipe to the street.
An easy way to turn your garage into a breezy workshop or even playroom for the children! Or, want the breeze with some privacy? Sunscreen (white or charcoal) will allow the breeze in but keep the nosy neighbors out!

We have one that runs on a track installed just below the garage door. It also has a slide
door in it. LOVE it, got it at an annual Strawberry Fest in Plant City Fl
