Yard Drainage Help
I live in ND and in my back yard the far back corner accumulates a lot of water during rain and spring melts. I think more is on the way due to the lots next to me being developed as well. There is a drainage pond in the back corner of my yard as well and my plan was to put down some drain tile, pvc, something in that corner and drain it to the pond to fix this issue.
I had access to a piece of equipment to do the trenching and it is there minus all the piping.
What to use, pvc or drain tile? My first thought was to use drain tile and simply bury it completely hoping that when theh rains came or whatever that it would drain through the soil into this pipe and away. Would that work do you think? I would probably use PVC from the ally back to the pond as it may get driven over being a foot or two in the ground and I don't want it to get smashed and plugged.
Any help or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for the help.
