Standing Water in Yard

I would like to know what to do about standing water in my back yard. This water is at the base of a hill and the end of my patio, about three feet wide. It runs the complete width of the yard. We purchased the house in August of last year and have no idea how to get rid of this problem. The house is about 5 years old.

Can someone give me guidence as to what to do about it.

Re: Standing Water in Yard

There are two things you can do, regrade the yard to remove the low spot that collects water and install a drainage system that will drain the water to municipal systems.
