Some drainage issues in the landscape may require regrading the slope and/or solutions such as a French drain. These solutions would require the assistance of a landscape contractor. However, you may be able to solve your problem by creating a raised bed or berm for your plantings. Adding organic matter to the existing soil will help water percolate into the soil better, and improve the drainage of the site.
