    Stop driving over it, if you can't put gravel down. If you want grass, the water needs to go some where, put a small drain or raise the area a bit then sod it.

    yeah if you drive over it just put gravel there and build it up to a higher level. if you want grass fill it up with more dirt to build it up then plant grass.

    The septic system and drains are located on the other side of the property. Again thanks for input.

    If you plan on continuing to drive on it you need to put gravel on it. If you want grass to grow you need to get the water off either with a drain or raising the grade so the water doesn’t pool there and not drive on it.
