Neighbor runoff?

If you are receiving water from your neighbors yard, they are responsible (legally in most cities) for taking care of it.

As far as french drains, they really are not much more than a simple trench about a foot deep and a shovel wide with corrugated perforated pipe in the bottom, covered with 1" ROUND rock. (do not use crushed)

The depth of the trench will vary in order to facilitate flow.

Sounds like a fun job, good luck!
