How do I prevent my garden from flooding?

9 years ago

This happens to my garden a few times a year. My garden is at the bottom of a hill, and my yard doesn't get very good drainage. It always goes down a day after very heavy rains, but it is still a major problem. Luckily this flood was before I planted my peppers.

What would be the best way to keep the water out? Would cinder blocks help, or are they too porous? I'd like to get sandbags, but I don't know where to find them.
