I am trying to solve a drainage issue at my home and am a drainage rookie. I have done a search and read alot of info. but not exactly what I was looking for or maybe I just need a step by step instructional. All of the lawns on our street have a side yard that slopes down then flattens to the adjoining neighbor. My neighbors lawn slopes down to my flat side yard, and of course leaves a fair amount of standing water after rain, we just had 3" over the past 3 days. The back lawn has a low spot across it that flows to a drainage pit that flows to the street. My idea is to put in a combination of surface drains where the water seems to pool up and run the pipe out to the rock pit. Does this sound right? The materials I found at my local hardware store were 4" flexible drain pipe, a "T" which would to up from the pipe to a 4" drain cover. Should I use pipe with holes to further help with drainage, do I put landscape fabric and rock under and above the pipe once buried then cover with soil and sod?
