Our back lawn gets soggy every winter. Sometimes it is so wet pools of water can stay on the surface for days.

This year I finally got around to doing something about it. I dug out a trench from the centre of the lawn to the ditch. Then I back filled it with stone to three inches and put the turf back.

It is obviously working as I now have a one foot wide strip of dry, yellow grass right across the lawn! Rolling Eyes

If I knew we were going to get a summer this year, I wouldn't have bothered. Laughing Laughing
