Surface water that begins puddling can indicate that a garden might need additional drainage. This isn't always the case as some of the time it has only become an issue because of compacted soil. This might be in old mature beds or a well used footpath and if this is the case the problem might be solved by simply cultivating the area to break up the soil.

If it is necessary to have drainage installed it is then time to decide what type of drainage is necessary.
