A tree service company might be able to do it however you should try to get estimates from some plumbers or handymans because, if you call a tree service just for this small job, they might not go.

No matter who you call, make sure they are fully insured. There are many things that can go wrong where underground work is concerned. Also, call DigSafe yourself before any underground work starts,. They will come out and mark the area showing any underground services in the proposed work area that must be avoided.

We had significant drainage issues on our property. We ultimately had a professional landscape company put in the drain. Then came out and walked the property both before and after rain. They ran water from a hose down our driveway to follow the path of the water and determined the pitch. They discussed the pros and cons of french drains vs leveling areas of the yard, etc. We ultimately opted for underground drainage system with drainage boxes and a pop up in one area. We even placed a drain box at the curve of our walkway where it was running off and ruining the yard. I'm sure other companies could do the work, but we were happy with the landscape company. For me it was more about them knowing where to place the drains, what type, and what size. The actual mechanics of the installation weren't so bad. Good Luck!
