Yard Drainage Help
I have some poor drainage in the back corner of my yard. The new house to my east is going to be pushing further water towards me so I can expect a good chunk of my yard to be under water. Also, in the back corner where most of the water goes, adjoining it is a holding pond for storm sewer overage. there is a gravel road that runs on he south side of my lot that allows access to this pond. The city said that if i wanted I could dig a trench to bury some pipe to have it drain there if i wanted.
I have the trench dug so need to bury some pipe. My questions are:
Should use burried drain tile in hopes the water will run through the soil an into the drain tile and then away from my yard? Do i need a drain at ground level to make this work?
With that gravel road back there, should i put down PVC from the back of my yard to the pond to make sure that if there are trucks coming in back there and driving on the road that the pipe will hold up to any traffic and not crumple making this worthless?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
