Hi guys I am just looking some advice. I am going to re-turf my lawn but at the same time I am going to add a drain to run off water as the lawn gets absolutely waterlogged. My question is where should I run the drainage pipe off to as the lawn slopes down towards the small wall but floods at the highest point. There are no trees etc to run the drain into as the hedging is at the back of the lawn up hill. There was ivy along the fence were the main flooding occurs but I have removed it and dug out the roots. Any advice e would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the forum @Andy Mo :)

Have you considered planting some water-hungry shrubs/trees along the fence? Or maybe a bog garden? Working with nature is often easier than fighting against it ;)

I might suggest field lines coming out along the base of the small brick wall? It looks like you may have enough slope. 6 inch pipe should do.
