Drainage issue on North side of property

Zone Zone 3 | Anonymous added on May 14, 2019 | Answered

Hello, I'm looking for suggestions as to how to get better drainage on the north side of my property. In the Spring, after the snow melts and rainy March and April, my side yard is very wet with sometimes standing water due to poor drainage (I think). There is also a slope down into my yard from the neighbors yard. The soil is predominantly clay and in zone 3 in the northeast US. This happens every spring. It does eventually dry up, but the excess moisture is bothersome-any suggestions or solutions? Thank you, Lois
