I run into this quite a bit and the solutions range from minor to major.
I saw this article and it gives a pretty good overview of whats involved from rain barrels to a pond.
Even if you believe you can implement one of these solutions on your own, water issues can be tricky.
You maybe exposing yourself to even more water and drainage issues if not properly addressed.
If you put in a berm or try to redirect the water you may end up with a significantly worse water issue even having it going into your house!
Your best bet is to give us a call to evaluate your problem and come up with the appropriate solution.
