This is what I saw in the backyard of a split level home after a light rain
The water was there due to overflow from gutter. I can clean the gutter but the puddle situation must be fixed as it will come back in some other way. The left side is concrete wall and here are photos of the other side which is the garage
Obviously someone tried to fix the leak by patching the crack with cement
I am not sure if this method works or not as I have not lived here for a full year yet to know.
What to do about the water puddle problem? Should I dig a trend somewhere and how to create that structure?
If the leak is still there in the garage, what do I do about the crack? Any better way to fix the leak?
