Drainage Issues - Grass Flooding

Hi all

New to the forum, but looking for some advice. 

My mothers garden sits much lower than the garden to the left and directly behind, so all all the water flows into her garden making it very wet and the grassy area unusable. 

I am looking for advice on adding some drainage/soakaway so she can have some Astro turf that won't become waterlogged. 

any help/ideas would be appreciated.

    Not a drainage expert. 

    Herringbone pattern pipes to a soak away or french drain. Looks to me that it always gonna be a problem and a soak away will most likely fill and flood. Can you not run Herringbone bone pattern drainage straight into the gully for house drainage? Far as I'm aware Its only new front drives that need a soakaway.

    Astro turf is evil and requires more maintenance than people realise. I'd just kill the grass, put a membrane down and cover in gravel.
