Drainage Issue. What would you do?

I've got a customer who wants me help solve a drainage issue behind their home.
Before anyone tells me to not mess with it and call someone else, GO AWAY!

I do a lot of different types of work for people and I love it that way. I never get bored.

The pictures really show it all. Water keeps ruining their decking boards and is definitely going to wear on the house's foundation. Doesn't seem to be anywhere to take the water unless we cut a tunnel through the hill into the woods or wrap pipe all the way around to the front of this house where the grade drops significantly.

Thanks for any ideas.

Sorry if this thread is in the wrong place...

So drain it for them! Keep it close on spacing gravel covering pipe with a straight sand on top. Make sure you have fall. Good to go!!!
