I have a sloped back yard. The ground is saturated in front of the retaining wall. I used rock landscaping material and the water is not leaking from the wall. We have had a lot of rain and I've got sod down in this area but it is mushy and muddy. It doesn't seem to dry.

  • Welcome to Home Improvement! A picture of the area might help people understand the situation. – IronEagle Sep 10 '19 at 16:46

  • A picture would help, but it sounds to me like the grading isn't allowing water to drain away from the area. – Phaelax z Sep 10 '19 at 20:23

    It sounds like the wall needs weep holes to allow the moisture to drain. – Ed Beal Sep 10 '19 at 21:43
