I'd to get water to drain away from my barn in ky.
I wonder if I used the tractor to dig a trench around the perimeter, put in some corrugated slotted black pipe and rebury it, would that work?

I can run it down and away from the barn.

get the slotted with a mesh cover so soil doesn't clog the pipe.

Also, anything you run in or across the yard, you should use SDR 35.  It won't collapse or crush over the years like the corrugated stuff will, and it has way better flow characteristics for getting water away. Link.

With sand and gravel below the pipe, would he actually need a screen?

We had our first house yard graded to have the water flow away from the house.  That worked really well.  This house  :angry: .  It has poor drainage.  There are ponds all over the place, and there's a leak in the foundation in the basement.  Floods every time it rains.  That is after we found the clog in the septic line out of the house and the backups that resulted from years of the previous owners driving over the septic line and driving it low enough to have a dip in it.  I'm getting really sick of mopping up floods and the destroyed floor down there.
