Plants for Wet Spots

Q: Our air conditioning is killing our yard. The condensation outlet to the outside is dripping water into a flower bed next to the house. It has created a very wet area that has killed all of our flowers and is now draining out into the yard.

Other than digging up the yard and putting in a drainage pipe, are there any other solutions?

A: You could make lemonade out of lemons by planting things that tolerate damp soil.
