I have a site that seems to hold a lot of water. I'll paint the picture. Low spot in the backyard and I would have to route the water about 60 feet to get it out to the front of the house and that would be between it and the neighboring house which is about 6 feet apart from each other. Going out the back of the yard is difficult because it is uphill the whole way with a berm which acts as a noise barrier to the street behind the house. In the particular area of concern I dug a hole 2x2 and filled with water just to see how it would drain, thinking that a dry well may help relieve the area. Three days later and it is not draining a bit. Soil is heavy, heavy clay so I don't see a dry well or even a bigger hole accomplishing much. I'm really not familiar with many drainage systems or products but I am sure there must be something out there to help. Any ideas or sites anyone can point me to. Thanks.
