How do I absorb a narrow stream of water that flows by my patio?


When it rains a strip of lawn in front of our patio swells with water that runs downhill from the woods on county land on the other side of a fence in our back yard. Although the hill in our yard spreads across the entire property, it is only in a small area where the water does not sink down underground and creates a stream right where we step off the patio. What DIY project will cover this wetness and extend the patio to a dry area of lawn. The home is 50 years old that we just purchased and may have something underground impeding the absorption of moisture.
