flooded yard conjoined with neighbor’s flooded yard

I want to plant roses and I remembered that last year one side of my yard was flooded with rain water coming from my neighbor’s yard. This lasted maybe a month but I don’t remember. I think it was early winter. But this year nothing happened so maybe it depends on the year. They basically had a pond in the corner of their yard and ducks and frogs were swimming in it. They don’t take care of their yard needless to say. They also have an ugly bush breaking into my fence but that’s another story. If this happens again is there any way I can drain this water or should I make my ground higher somehow? I would really like to plant my roses and they are coming in this week! I want to take all the precautions I can even though I rushed this process.
