Hi all - Thanks for any help... as you can see from the photos below, I have an irrigation issue. I live in CO and have clay, not dirt. One part of my yard was continuously getting way too much water. I have dug up the offending area and checked the sprinkler head for leaks. No leaks. The last 2 pictures are taken 2 days after watering (10 minutes). The water simply has no where to go. It looks like a bowl of water and the water level decreases only by the sun's evaporation. It is in the middle of my yard and I'm not sure what to sprinkler guy suggested building a french drain. I can't figure out why the water won't eventually disperse? Thanks for any help...
