Jelly invasion...!

We have a boggy patch in our garden lawn that seems to have spawned a weird, clear jelly on the surface. I've googled it and have had various answers including nostoc or alien star jelly! 

Any ideas how to deal with it?

    I think the answer is to improve the drainage image

    This thread has been going since 2012 but is still added to on a regular basis. It's mostly for gravel but it'll give you an idea of where to start...maybe.... image

    More rain overnight and we still have " standing water" on the grass.image

  • Better drainage is the top answer - also the most difficult with the terrain we have here!
    And the rain - when will it ever stop!?! image

    The area in question is now a puddle again. Seriously considering digging a pond instead and channeling water from the rest of the lawn into it!

    But first, I think I'll use a good moss and algae killer to get rid of the jelly...

    Thanks for your help everyone...image
