Tough drainage situation...ground water.

I've done alot of drainage jobs with success. Normally, we just do some type of french drain and we are good to go. I looked at a job yesterday that has me stumped.

Its a 40x80' front lawn. Its very wet. By looking at the swampy area in the woods right next to the lawn, its pretty clear that its ground water coming up. The customer has it is we all year round. The yard section does have some pitch if that matters.

How do I deal with this situation? The entire lawn is almost equally wet.

I'm thinking we almost need to dig down 2' and lay down 12" of clean stone, then fabric on top and then topsoil.


Thoughts?
