    Making a faux river rock stream through your property out to the street and storm drain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG2lFC7dy8o

    Well it depends where the water is coming from: Rain, next door or down a hill. Dig a ditch that lead to a spill way or to the street and fill it in with sand or rock depending on how swift the water is and how much there is of it. You should try to reroute it if it is coming toward your foundation.

    Swales!! I used that on my hillside acreage to move water away from my house. Works wonders and is not expensive to do.
