What are the causes of a depression in the yard?View of a yard, house, and fence

A depression in your yard can be caused by a number of things, the main one being an influx of rain in the area. When it rains heavily, the ground can become oversaturated. That’s what causes the standing water in your yard. As the ground is oversaturated, it weakens, working against your foundation so that it becomes weak as well. You don’t want to ignore a problem like this, as it can slowly but surely lower the value and safety of your home. Water can rot support joists, ruin electrical or plumbing work, or even cause walls to crumble. If you see a depression in your yard, this could be just the start of serious structural issues for your home.
