    In a word--drainage. Install an underground tube and lead water to an outlet. A good job for a professional who has a trenching machine and a laser leveling device.
    Second choice is a "French drain" a trench cut in ground and filled with loose stone or pebbles, thereby carrying water downhill.
    Or improve surface contour, add soil so you have no low spot, and resod the spot.
