Our back yard slopes down drain water and is along the "drain line" of the
corn field it once was. We reclaimed the land and facilitated drainage with
underground water pipes (2 ft diameter). Even so- during serious rains-
there is water running over the surface and is washing off the lawn. I have
tried to distribute the water by locating a flower bed in the 'path'. It
helped - but not quite a lot.

Any farm boy can tell you that you need terraces. And your 2' drain pipes are
real monsters, which leads to serious doubts about the competence of the
engineering people who developed the site plan. You might want to consider
getting better qualified talent to plan for long term surface water control.
Terracing, rocks, plants, diversion channels of wood or rock or metal.
