drainage systems

I am looking for directions, preparation proceedures, tools and materials, and time considerations for building a comprehensive drainage system in my back yard. I want to incorporate underground pipe throughout the yard and also run water from the gutters through the system.

I live in Western Washington in a town of about 20,000 residents. OFten there is water standing in the yard days after it has rained. The yard is 62'x 62'. There is a dirt road behind the house which serves as an alley between the homes on my street and the homes on the next street over. There is about an 18" deep and 24" wide ditch between the fence and the road.
