In reply to Flooded back yard by Bob on March 9th, 2003 11:25 AM [Go to top of thread]

I had the same problem. I live in a suburb and Raising the area meant flooding neighbors. I rented a ditch witch and installed drain tile(covered) to almost the street, in the low part of the yard and installed a small catch basin. Gravity does the rest. It worked. I put in about 12 yards of fill and 8 yards of top soil. to ensure the water goes toward the tile. Did it myself for about $200.00.
