Surface water that does not drain properly can ruin your property in a variety of ways.  It leaves your lawn looking un-kept and sloppy.  Yards that have standing water prevents homeowners to get the full use out of their property. Standing water can be caused from various reasons, and the most common reasons in Minnesota are; Sump pump drain tile is not run long enough to drain in a proper drainage outlet.  This water then, will constantly drain water out in the middle of your lawn making it a pool of water.  Another reason, is improper grading of the landscape.  The surface is usually sloped so water will  run down to the bottom with no drainage underneath the ground, leaving water to collect in a puddle. Surface water can also be caused when water from rain gutters have no where to go.  Diversified Drainage has solutions for all types of surface water drainage.
