landscaping a soggy wet backyard, flood zone
We recently moved into our new home. Our backyard is about 1/2 acre and it is always as wet as a sponge. The back corners of our backyard are in a flood zone. Our neighbor's property to the side of us is a couple of inches higher and their water flows into our yard. When we moved in, we build a french drain in the middle of backyard. The backyard is still always wet. How can we landscape to push water to one corner of yard and to avoid taking in all our neighbors water?
