    Default Do I need a Dry Well?

    I'm in the process of re-doing our side lawn, but before I can re-seed I need to fix a little drainage problem.

    It might be difficult to see, but the puddle goes all the way back to the exterior tankless hot water heater. You might have noticed that even the river birch is having some trouble digging into the tough Georgia clay.

    The source or the water is strictly rain run off. Our gutter dumps into the puddle (rain barrel is in the garage and waiting to be installed). The neighbor's house doesn't have any gutters on this side.

    So how should I fix this. Is a dry well the way to go? Or is there another way?

    If a dry well is the way to go, where can I get some info on installing one. I remember seeing Roger Cook install one on "Ask This Old House", but I can't seem to find any info on the website.

    Thanks in advance.
