When it comes to pooling water in your yard, there are a few possible causes, and therefore a few different ways to deal with the issue. One potential cause of persistent puddles is having too much plant debris, or thatch, on your lawn, as that extra plant matter makes it harder for the water to drain back into the ground. In that situation, simply removing the excess thatch should do the trick to get rid of the water.
Another thing that can cause pooling water is the soil becoming too tightly compacted, creating a barrier that is difficult for water to seep into. The solution to this issue is to aerate the lawn, punching holes in the surface of the soil to loosen it and give the water somewhere to go.
A third possible culprit behind your pooling water problem is an improper grade—in other words, your lawn is not angled in a way that lets water drain downhill. In this situation, you will need experts to re-grade your yard and correct the drainage problem.
