Q.Drainage Problem

Zone Goose Creek, SC 29445 | Kelly Bates added on September 16, 2021 | Answered

We have had a lot of issues with standing water in the front at the house where the bushes and flowers were. We had gutters installed hoping that would solve the problem. We previously noticed when redoing the front that there is a lot of clay. We added black cow before planting. Well we still have the issue and it ruined all we had planted. So we were at square one. We added more black cow, re planted, and we are still having the same issue of water standing in areas around some of what was planted, and it’s just not draining. Some areas are puddles. So we need to raise the grade? How? What can we do to fix this because we are wanting to sell the home but when we redo this again we want it to be the last time. Thank You in advance.
