Re: Help My yard is a swamp
It sounds as though you have a high water table, which means that no amount of grass is going to change the saturated ground. What you will likely need to do is regrade the property so that water naturally drains to municipal systems. If you're higher than the street, then laying drain pipe from the backyard to the street will help facilitate the shedding of excess water.
In regrading, you want the ground to slope away from the house in all directions and crest roughly along the centerline of the yard. This will help to shed the water to the sides where either grading or drain lines can carry the water forward to municipal systems.
