A dry well is basically an underground pit of gravel or other material containing excess fluid and containing water, which water is soaked into soil. It is possible to expand a dry well’s capability by burying dry well barrels. This plastic bottle collects water and retains it when the water is draining in a hole between the sides and bottom.

Those containers should be covered with gravel or other materials that allow drainage. It may be placed as separate pieces or as stacked. Dry wells usually require large amounts of water to collect the first 10-15 seconds during a large rainstorm.

A rain garden is a space in your yard where water will come out of the ground and be surrounded by water-loving vegetation. This doesn’t solve the problem of soggy lawns, but rain gardens are much easier to maintain.

A rain garden also promotes a healthy environment. Water is reclaimed from the soil and reduces the lawn chemicals, pets and mud. Rain gardens do not require water as ponds do. You could add drainage and use the rain garden to keep excess water from dripping.
