Use solid drain pipe, not that crappy corrugated stuff. We like 1/4" per foot drop.

Maintain that slope, as others have said.

If there are lots of boulders in the lawn, the corrugated stuff is invaluable.

I would go solid drain pipe with 22 degree fittings spaced a couple feet apart, GLUE the fittings (amazing how many people just slip them on). IMO get crestline 4" SD. 1/8" is minimum for drain, 1/4" is typical in house plumbing. Like Mike said shoot for 1/4". 20 feet is easy to snake out, even with a 4" ADS (corregated pipe). If you don't have any equipment I would not bother renting any, that is really a short distance. 72' is a work out, but doable. Hire a punk kid.

The dirt on the tarp is to keep things clean.

Yes and not in TX where I want to be either. Dealing with house issues. I've had three contracts all killed by an inspector. Can't be too critical though. The El Nino is just keeping the water level high here and I'd have to drain the whole neighborhood to eliminate the moisture under my house. Capillary action is wreaking havoc for me. 4 years ago this would not even have been an issue and a few years from now it will quit being one too.

Do you have standing water or is it just damp?
