You could also put a Lien on her property. I'm not certain if your area uses a "mechanics Lien" or a "builders lien." Usually you can't recoup the filing costs on collections such as this. That could be a few hundred dollars depending on your local laws.
I would do a search of lien laws in your area. There may be a time sensative restriction on filing.
If she had a drainage problem and it was an insurance claim...how do the two things equate? Was the drainage problem there before she had her well repaired? How come so many plants had to be planted? I think I smell a fish?
Perhaps her insurance company has some answers for you?
A drainage problem has to be taken care of with drainage pipe and french drains and all of those methods that will remove water problems.
If you have drainage questions, go to the hardscape forum.
