How can I stop my lawn from flooding?
Patricia Q. Patterson on Jun 22, 2018Sounds like you need to change the grade of the land to drain effectively. A bobcat could probably do the work in a short period of time. A knowledgeable dozer man or woman can handle this for you. Also, a French drain can be installed to help the water drain.Helpful Reply
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Jun 22, 2018Regrade the yard, fill in the low spots by trucking in soil, and / or install a drain system, typically a french drain.Helpful Reply
Erin Hugar Chavez on Jun 22, 2018People around us dig French drains. They are a way to naturally divert the water and to do so in a pretty way. Typically plants are planted along the drain.Helpful Reply
