Hi girls! I'm new to this board, and completely inexperienced with any gardening/landscaping since me and hubby always have lived in a place where there was either no grass, or the most we had to do was help out the landlord by mowing the lawn every once in a while... Anyway, we recently bought a new house, and moved in when there was tons of snow on the ground. Now that the snow is melting, we see that the backyard has a drainage issue, with a huge accumulation of water right in the middle and off to one side. We asked our neighbors about their experience, and the people across the street said that the best way to handle this is to install a french drain. I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it looks like its like a channel with rocks to kinda get water going where you want it to. Does anyone have any experience with these? Will a french drain on the side of the house stop the water from accumulating in the middle of the yard? Is there a way to do this with pipes or something? Neither me nor hubby know what we're doing when it comes to this stuff...any advice is appreciated!
