Picture: Drain with buried pipe or dry creek bed???
I have an area of my backyard that collects water after a heavy rain. The water will take 2-3 days to sink in/evaporate.
I was thinking of installing a trench with a buried slotted pipe or an open dry creek bed. This area is slightly lower than the side of the house where I would put the trench or creek bed, but eventually slopes down toward the street when I get to the front yard.
Which would be more effective and less maintenance, trench with pipe or the creek bed? How deep should either be dug?
I wasn't sure how to insert the picture within this message so I had to link to the gallery below.
Here is a link that might be useful:
