Water under Deck

Hello,
my deck is 3feet above the ground. Every time it is raining, water is building up under the deck. The soil is clay. How can I fix this? How can I drain the water into the ground better?

Re: Water under Deck

get some topsoil and build up the grade at the house so it slopes away from the building, as for better drainage you would have to dig out the clay and replace it with some 3/4" stone then top off with soil
