Help with rain garden location

I am taking the Friends of the Rouge Master Rain Gardener class (Southeastern MI). Our homework assignment is to choose a potential site for our rain garden. I am thinking of locating my rain garden at the corner of my patio (farthest point of the corner is 17 ft. from my house wall. I would like to make the garden a loose “kidney bean“ shape that wraps around the corner of the cement patio and would be approximately 4-5 ft. wide. I have heavy clay soil that drains very poorly (I’ve seen mallard ducks swimming in the standing water after it rains). Thanks for any suggestion!
