How to Fix Standing Water in Yard: Try Simple Fixes First
Extend the Downspout: Downspout drainage solutions
Landscaping near the house can create a basin for water. Extending the downspout usually solves the problem. Before you start digging a trench or taking some other drastic action to get rid of a wet spot or standing water in your yard, step back and survey the situation to see where the water is coming from. The problem could be as simple as a downspout or sump pump discharge that’s draining into a low area of your yard. Redirecting your downspout or running the discharge pipe from your sump pump drainage outside to a different location might be all you need to do.
