flooding backyard !

Hi , i have a pie shaped yard , it is flooding the back corner to the middle of the yard. there was a row of evergreens planted along the fence line apparently that was the weeping tile for the back of the properties , the shed is in the back corner and built up by all the neighbors, is there a way of fixing the problem without digging up all the dirt ..

Welcome to the forums Tracy!

Water tends to take the path with the least resistance, while it would involve digging/grading it would help to route the water away from your house. Plants can drink up some of the water but there is a limit to how much the ground and roots can absorb.
