    Where is the water coming from? If its coming from your gutters, buy extensions for them to drain further from the house. Here in Oregon, we put extensions under ground (pipe) for the downspouts to drain into, and I have added longer extensions to the downpout for the water to drain into the driveway instead of pooling near the house.
