How should I regrade my lot?

I hope I did a good enough job with these images. Bear with me. If you need any more images, please let me know. It's a busy weekend, but I should be able to get some.

Here is a diagram of our lot (the red shows least and worst areas):

Here is an entire album of issues we have been having with water:
Boggy Yard - Imgur
(You can ignore the pictures of drawings before the diagram at the end - was working out possible French drain or dry creek bed options.)

How should I regrade this lot? I am thinking a swale would benefit us. Possibly one that goes from side yard, down fence line (seen on left side in top-down view), and bending around alongside the garage.

What do you all think?

Sort of like a repeat of this thread, too:

That topic seemed to have lost traction, unfortunately. Was hoping this one might attract more with an appropriate title.
